Eyes on the Women of Asia
In Celebration of Women's History Month
In celebration of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month this March, Asia Society Philippines partnered with Ramon Magsaysay Award Foundation for a special series, Eyes on the Women of Asia, highlighting the women of Asia whose works have helped shape a better future for all.
Through this series, we remember, recognized, and celebrate the achievements and contributions of five exemplary women who tirelessly uphold women’s rights and empower them. These five women— Michiko Ishimure of Japan, Angela Gomes of Bangladesh, Tri Mumpuni of Indonesia, Lahpai Seng Raw of Myanmar, and Kommaly Chanthavong of Laos— serve as inspirations for everyone, especially women, to continuously smash boundaries and shatter gender stereotypes.
