To compile net worths, we valued individual assets, including stakes in public companies, using stock prices from May 3. We valued private companies by consulting with outside experts and conservatively comparing them with public companies. To be eligible for the list, women have to have substantially made their own fortunes in the U.S. and/or be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Kylie Jenner’s inclusion in the ranks a year ago set off a heated internet debate about the meaning of \"self-made.\" Forbes uses the term to describe anyone who built or earned a fortune as opposed to inheriting it. Obviously all successful entrepreneurs and executives get help along the way from cofounders, investors, customers and employees. Some climbed farther and overcame more obstacles to get into the ranks. To measure just how far some have come, women are given a self-made score of 6 (hired hand) to 10 (rags-to-riches entrepreneur). We attempted to vet numbers with all list entrants. Some cooperated, others didn’t.
