I have a mother, wife and daughter and I know that women are powerful. There is nothing like 'less powerful women'...Period.

Powerful men are attracted to powerful women. The less powerful women are more attractive to less powerful men.

Power is a natural aphrodisiac and it is natural to be attracted to power but men who are not very powerful and are insecure themselves, get attracted to women who are like that.

Prahlad Kakkar

I think powerful women are very attractive to men but their sense of survival makes the men cautious and they settle for a woman who is less powerful. They do not want to spend their whole life competing with a powerful woman so they go for someone who is not. This decision is a rational one not emotional. Powerful women are more charismatic and men love being around them. Men who are very confident and who are not insecure in any way always want more powerful women as companions.

I believe that powerful women are attractive to men. They have a certain standing in the society and when they are out on a date some great conversations can happen. They would be the ones to know about the best wines. And come on who wouldn't be attracted to a Priyanka Gandhi, Sushmita Sen or a Sania Mirza!

Vickram Bawa

Definitely not in my case (laughs). I think mostly all men chase stronger and more powerful women. But more than anything I'd say men are attracted to a beautiful soul.

Manav Gohil

The 'man' is getting more urban /modern. This new version requires of him to let go of the conventional man-woman relationship he had witnessed in his growing years. He seeks, in a companion, an equal, not a meeker partner. Personality, I feel powerful women are more intriguing, more attractive!

Purab Kohli

No I do not believe that less powerful women are attractive. Actually powerful women can be very attractive. But if she is out to prove her power then it is a put off. But in general a stable powerful person is very attractive.

Not at all! Look at Angelina Jolie and Aishwarya Rai for examples of very powerful women who are yet undoubtedly attractive to men in the West and East respectively. Is there a level of intimidation that men feel when interacting with powerful women- definitely but I don't think that powerfulness diminishes attractiveness though it can certainly make some men insecure? By the way, my wife is far more powerful than I., and I find her extremely attractive!
