Welp, the world has voted -- no, not that vote -- and Medea Benjamin is MORE influential than Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie!!!!!!!!!
Wowowow.com, the daily salon site started by Whoopi Goldberg, Liz Smith, Lesley Stahl and more leading journalists and pundits, polled readers two weeks ago of the women changing the world most. And Medea, a CODEPINK cofounder, ranks in the top four with Oprah, Melinda Gates and Hillary Clinton! Holy frejoles!
Anyone who's worked with her knows it's true. (Not sure who she is? Watch this video of her and cofounder Jodie Evans disrupting Sarah Palin's speech at the RNC in September here, check out this photo of her taking the stage to demand moratoriums on foreclosures at a mortgage bankers conference here, and read one her column on policy toward Afghanistan on Huffington Post here, to start.) Medea has moved mountains.
Imagine if Medea and Angelina joined together -- they'd single-handedly solve the world's crises. And adopt lots of babies.
