Angelina Jolie for the third consecutive year has emerged as the world’s most admired woman, according to the United Kingdom-based YouGov’s annual study. 

YouGov is an international Internet-based, British market research and data analytics firm which analyses information and publishes select findings on its website.

This year, YouGov expanded the study to cover views of almost 37,000 people in 35 countries to compile the list. In December 2017,  YouGov gathered nominations from panelists across 35 countries, asking them simply: “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?”

These nominations were then used to compile the list of 20 women who received the most nominations and were nominated in at least four countries. An additional 10 popular local figures were added to the lists for individual countries.
