Sharon, who chairs the European Parliament’s influential Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee, said: ‘I am flattered to have been named on this year’s FN100 Influential Women list as it is acknowledgment of the long hours and hard work.

‘As chair of the European Parliament’s economic committee, I will continue to contribute to the debate surrounding the Eurozone crisis and help shape financial legislation. It is a difficult time for Europe right now and I sincerely hope that countries see sense, come together, and do what is needed to get through the crisis.’
