Eighteen Malaysian women will be recognised for their strengths and achievements.
THE new-generation Malaysian woman is successful and self-assured. She is able to balance traditional values with a modern outlook.
She is passionate, be it about the arts, a sport, a charity, or even her personal style. And she makes time for her passion, and more, in between hours at work.
