Women power in Philippines

Nearly half of senior positions held by women but many still poor and deprived of education.

    The Philippines tops the list of countries with the most female executives in the world, with 48 per cent of senior positions in private businesses occupied by women.

    But while some women continue to break barriers, there are many more who are being left behind, with limited choices due to poverty and lack of education.
