Indira Gandhi of whom everyone is proud of; world's longest serving woman prime minister, has been ranked by the Time magazine as the ninth most powerful woman of the past century, a list that also includes Mother Teresa. The list of '25 Most Powerful Women of the Past Century' is topped by Jane Addams, an outspoken advocate for women's suffrage, who was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is ranked sixth on the list. "She was the nation's daughter, brought up under the close watch of both her father Jawaharlal Nehru, who was India's first Prime Minister after decades of British rule, and her country

When Gandhi was elected prime minister in 1966, a cover line had read, 'Troubled India in a Woman's Hands'. Those steady hands went on to steer India, not without controversy, for much of the next two decades through recession, famine, the detonation of the nation's first atomic bomb, a corruption scandal and a civil war in neighbouring Pakistan that, under her guidance, led to the creation of a new state, Bangladesh. She served three consecutive terms from 1966 to 1977 and was in the middle of her fourth term from 1980 when she was assassinated in 1984. By the time she was assassinated, Gandhi was the world's longest-serving woman prime minister, a distinction she holds to this day. Sometimes criticized for lacking adequate medical training, not addressing poverty on a grander scale, actively opposing birth control and abortion and even cozying up to dictators, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize nonetheless inspired countless volunteers to serve.
