(Newser) – Yahoo! has released a list of its 10 most-searched women of the year, including obvious honorees and some more off the radar:

  • Angelina Jolie: The birth of her twins, box-office success, and a dramatic turn in Changeling made Jolie the most-searched woman on the engine.
  • Sarah Palin: Given her brief stint in the spotlight, it may surprise some that she took second—but her beauty and frontier know-how didn't hurt.

  • Hillary Clinton: Overshadowed by Palin searches, the New York senator's historic bid for the presidency assured her many hits.
  • Gina Carano: Gina who? That's Crush from American Gladiators, and a professional kickboxer in her own right. She came in at #5, two spots above Michelle Obama.
  • Dana Torres: The swimmer made 10 on the list, due to her inspirational fight to become the first, and oldest, woman to compete in five Olympic Games.
