On September 11, 2019,​ Asia Society announced its 2019 Asia Game Changers, a group of inspiring and path-breaking women ​who are making a transformative impact in Asia and beyond.

​In partnership with Citi, Asia Society annually honors game-changing ​leaders from a broad geographic range and varied backgrounds; this year marks the first​ time that all of the honorees are women.

"Our 2019 Asia Game Changers are women who have truly championed gender equality while making enormous contributions to society and social structures within their home countries," Asia Society President and CEO ​Josette Sheeran​ said. "They are inspiring agents of change who are building a better world — for women and for everyone — by changing the rules, changing the game, and challenging all of us to follow their lead."
