Women Don't Rate on Vanity Fair's New Establishment List

Vanity Fair loves its lists. Next month's issue covers the "new establishment" those mostly men folk who are the "leaders of the information age" and are reaping in the bucks while most of us plebs struggle. Out of 100 entries (there are a bunch of entries that include more than one person) there are only 9 women on the list and several of them are listed with husbands. Can't they do any better and why are most of the women on the list in fashion?

9- Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
18- Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg
30- Miuccia Prada
43- Oprah Winfrey
50- Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols
57- Oscar and Annette de la Renta
64- Anna Wintour
75- Donatella Versace
90- Arianna Huffington
