Then and now: The most powerful women in business
CNNMoney
Fortune looked at its list of the 1,000 largest industrial companies, plus the 50 largest companies in six non-industrial businesses.

And this is especially important for females in the workplace — because women with firm handshakes are evaluated as positively as men.
