A week into the job and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has already rocketed into the Forbes list of the most powerful women in the political world.

She's ranked at 13 in the list of 22 women, ahead of Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at 15 and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at 20.

The magazine highlighted Ms Ardern's status as the world's youngest female leader and the 'Jacindamania' around her surge to power.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel topped the list, followed by British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Ivanka Trump came in at number six for her role as a White House advisor to her father, US President Donald Trump.

In Forbes' wider list of the world's most powerful women, Ms Ardern, 37, was ranked 38th.
