Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, has made it to the BBC’s 100 Women list of political scions along with US President Donald Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump.

The list mentions influential women from across the world who have a stature in their respective countries being the first daughters.

“Originally involved in the family's charity organisations, Ms Nawaz played a prominent role in managing her father's successful re-election campaign in 2013,” the BBC said.

The list also named Russian President Vladimir Putin’s daughter, saying she was living in Moscow with a pseudonym of Katerina Tikhonova. Although Putin has two daughters, there is little or information about the second one.

“Russians have learned from various media reports that she is married to businessman Kirill Shamalov, the son of one of her father's old friends, and that the couple are worth an estimated $2 billion through investments in the gas and petrochemicals industries,” the report said.

The list also contains the names of Turkey, Cuba and Angola’s first daughters.
