Asia's Most Powerful Women

Asia's Most Powerful Women
Across Asia, women are climbing the ranks, whether it be through business or politics. From China to Singapore, Asia is home to some of the most powerful women in the world.

Across Asia, women are climbing the ranks, whether it be through business or politics. Asia’s high-powered business women have been on FORBES’s radar, with the list of Asia’s 50 Power Business Women in February. However while CEOs like Zhang Xin of Soho China and Chua Sock Koong of SingTel are making waves with their business skills, Asian women shouldn’t be boxed into one base of power. Former business juggernaut Chan Laiwa is now one of the worlds most important artistic investors and cultural diplomats, preserving and presenting China’s red sandalwood art around the world. Yingluck Shinawatra and Aung San Suu Kyi yield political power on an international scale. Sri Mulyani Indrawati and Margaret Chan manage some of the most influential international humanitarian organizations in the world.
From China to Thailand, these women’s power in their countries and beyond are impossible to ignore. Across the board, Asian women more influential than ever in 2012, making up 11 of FORBES’s top 100 most powerful women.
