The number of women billionaires grew globally from 91 in 2010 to 243 in 2019.

"Kylie Jenner broke a new record becoming a billionaire at age 21. Mark Zuckerberg became a billionaire at his 23, but now a woman is the world's youngest billionaire," he said.

Jenner’s latest boost in wealth comes primarily from Kylie Cosmetics, her makeup company, which Forbes now values at $900 million.
