#FemaleForward : Spotlight Southeast Asia

#FemaleForwardInternational presents the stories of powerful women worldwide rising above the tide and classic hierarchies. In our first spotlight we highlight Southeast Asia – a young woman in Indonesia unintimidated by age and gender; a feisty lady unsilenced by threats in Malaysia; a relentless writer and educator in Myanmar; a human rights defender in the Philippines, slaying dragons in local politics; and a compassionate businesswoman in Vietnam, building her company on pillars of kindness. Their achievements and life stories show how organizations, businesses, and communities can thrive when women take on bigger roles.
