A total of 328 women made the Forbes billionaires list, up from 241 last year. As a group, the women on the list are worth $1.53 trillion, a nearly 60 percent increase over the past year, according to Forbes' analysis.

L'Oreal's Meyers, the world's richest woman, scored the biggest dollar gain among women whose fortune is tied to public stocks. L'Oreal's share price rose nearly 40 percent since last March, adding $24.7 billion to Bettencourt's net worth.

MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, also became richer, with her fortune growing to $53 billion due to skyrocketing Amazon stocks she got in the divorce.
