    Tuesday is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day - a day celebrated across the world to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

    China's Wang Mengqiu is one such woman who has found opportunity in the country's fast-paced technology sector. She holds a unique position - vice president of search technologies for Baidu, China's reigning champion of online search services.

    Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan met with Wang to uncover her secret to success as a female leader in a conventionally male-dominated discipline.
