The Increasing Importance of Women in Society | April 2021

We recently celebrated International Women’s Day and Hari Kartini is celebrated in April too, thus, it is an apt time to talk about women. In particular recognising the increasing importance women are now playing in society - but there is a long way to go. In this Issue, you will find stories about some of Indonesia's leading women, such as Suzy Hutomo of Body Shop Indonesia; Shinta Kamdani, Chair of Indonesia's Chamber of Commerce; and Ligwina Hananto, one of Indonesia's top standup comedians. These women, and others featured in this issue, are the role models for the women of tomorrow, showing them that it can be done and to always strive for the top of their ambitions, no matter what those pesky men say! All this and more.
