Fifty-six women comprise 14% total of the Forbes’ 400 list of the wealthiest Americans, who together have a jaw-dropping combined net worth of $2.96 trillion. The richest woman in America is Alice Walton, the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton, with a net worth of $51.4 billion. She is joined by newcomers Julia Koch and her children, MacKenzie Bezos, Janice McNair, and Margot Birmingham Perot. Surprisingly, the famous celebrity billionaire Kylie Jenner, with a net worth of $1 billion, did not make the $2.1 billion threshold for this annual list.
