The number of self-made women billionaires has increased, especially in China, says Rupert Hoogewerf, chief researcher of the Hurun Report, who released earlier in March the 2022 Rich List, according to Money Control. “There are historical, political, social, and economic dynamics at play here,” he says.
Meanwhile, commenting on the report, Rupert Hoogewerf, chairman and chief researcher of Hurun Report, said, “There are 124 self-made women billionaires in the world today, double that of five years ago and 100 more than ten years ago.”
Speaking about the the most successful women entrepreneurs in China, he added, “The self-made women billionaires in the world tell the story of the most successful women in business and these stories start with China. Why does China have two thirds of the world’s self-made women billionaires, more than double the rest of the world combined?”
“There are historical, political, social and economic dynamics at play here. One indicator can be seen from the Hurun China Private Companies SDG Readiness Index 2021, where Chinese businesses performed strongly in United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 Gender Equality.”
