Many Asian women are now making their mark in such diverse fields as Politics, Business, Media and the Arts and Academia.
 
This book profiles these very special women, ranging from shop floor trade union activists to successful business women, consultants, painters and writers. All have been inspired by the need to shatter stereotypes by breaking through the "glass ceiling" of inequality.
 
The Asian women profiled here are incontestable role models for their peer groups and the younger generation.
 
As "Women of Substance" they have needed courage and sheer determination to make their to make their achievements possible, changing the way in which Asian women are perceived. These are the women who have led the way, but, despite these successes, Asian women still have a long way to go!
