Emma Watson has been ranked number 1 in the 'Top 99 Most Outstanding Women of 2015' list on men's lifestyle magazine, AskMen.

James Bassil, the publisher of the magazine, said that the list was a shift in modern male thinking and highlighted women who had demonstrated a sheer influence in their industry, and were doing something to demonstrate their versatility and raw talent, E! Online reported.

The 24-year-old Harry Potter actor, who scored number 5 in the last year's edition, topped this year's edition due to several reasons cited by the magazine, including her work as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, involvement in the HeForShe pro-gender equality campaign, participation in a Facebook chat on International Women's Day and her British Artist of the Year honor at the Britannia Awards.

Other names in the list are UFC fighting champ Ronda Rousey (2), Kim Kardashian (3), Taylor Swift (4), Lindsey Vonn (5), Beyonce (7), Amal Clooney (8), Jennifer Lawrence (9) and Michelle Obama (12).
