MANILA, Philippines — Five Filipinas, including actress Dolly de Leon, were included in Forbes magazine's third annual "50 Over 50: Asia" list.

The 50 women in the list hail from 14 different countries and over two dozen sectors like fashion and finance, even 112-year-old environmentalist and "mother of trees" Saalumarada Thimmakka from India made the cut.

For de Leon's writeup, Forbes took note of the actress' historic nominations at the Golden Globes and BAFTAs following her scene-stealing role in "Triangle of Sadness," and she has two films currently at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival — "Between The Temples" and "Ghostlight."

Also on the list is supermarket chain Puregold co-founder Susan Co, who together with husband Lucio, have a combined net worth of $2.3 billion (P1.29 trillion).

Co is also the vice-chair of retail holding company Cosco Capital which has stakes in commercial real estate and liquor distribution businesses, and holds directorship in dozens of other companies.

Another businesswoman on the list is Medlink Networks president Esther Go, who is also a director in other local corporations such as Equicom Health Services, Equicom Savings Bank and Security Bank.

Anna Ma. Margarita "Meean" Dy, the first female Chief Excutive Officer of Ayala Land Inc., and recent Ramon Magsaysay Award winner Miriam Coronel-Ferrer — recognized for her efforts in conflict resolution and gender inclusivity — round up the Filipinos on the list.
