The late Joan Rivers became the first when she snagged the title in 2009.

The media was thrilled to see girl power prevail on the show again.

As a writer for Bustle put it, "It’s about time another woman is recognized for her smarts, business skills, charitable endeavors, humility, among many other worthy qualities."

"Never underestimate a woman with passion who knows where she was going and what she wants," Gibbons said.
