Biography

Anson Chan was Hong Kong's Chief Secretary, the head of the civil service under British rule, and after the transfer of sovereignty held the post under Chinese rule. She was the first ethnic Chinese to hold the second-highest governmental position in Hong Kong. She has often been described as Hong Kong's "Iron Lady," and is regarded as one of the most powerful women in Asia. In 2013, she helped launch the Hong Kong 2020 campaign, which advocates for constitutional changes in order to achieve "full universal suffrage for election of the Chief Executive in 2017 and all members of the Legislative Council by 2020."
