5. Griselda Blanco: $2 billion
While the men were known to have ruled the drug business at the time, Griselda Blanco clearly wanted in, hoping that she could also change her living habits for the better. Having grown up in a poor household, one can only imagine how Griselda must have felt when she had $2 billion in her bank account — this evidently gave her the freedom to do whatever she wanted. Her affiliation with other drug bosses led to her orders of having 200 people killed in the process. She might have been a woman, but she thought and acted just like the fellas.
