Tsai Ing-wen is the most powerful politician woman, being recently elected as the President of the Republic of China widely known as Taiwan. The small island located in the south east of China has now the first female president ever to be elected in China and the second in Asia. Tsai Ing-wen is also the chairwoman of the Democratic Progressive Party or DPP which has a rising majority in Taiwan. Her goal is to maintain a long term balance and good diplomatic – political relations with Xi Jinping – China’s president, but Tsai Ing-wen is also a fighter for Taiwan’s independence. This issue seems not to affect China or Beijing which give the impression not to care about the Taiwan’s elections stating that Taiwan is still a province of China no matter the leader or president.
Political waves surrounding Taiwan seem to be heading to a new form of democracy in the region, as Japan and USA have already expressed their full support to Tsai Ing-wen. Taiwan has a self increasing economy being independent from China or Beijing a country on its own where people have voted for progress and democracy, two important ideologies that were missing before Tsai Ing-wen. Born in Taipei, on 31 October 1956 , the 60 years old Tsai Ing-wen studied law and obtained a law PhD in 1984 at the London School of Economics and started teaching. In 2004 Tsai Ing-wen becomes a member of the Democratic Progressive Party ( DPP ) the same party that transformed her into a leader of justice and a fighter for independence. Her popularity is now on a continuous growth being already recognized by media as the Most Powerful Woman in China with strong principles of democracy and national identity. Tsai Ing-wen has proved that working hard for a purpose it is just a matter of time until your dream will turn into reality, even in a tough society governed by men.
