Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti was among the list of 100 inspirational and innovative women of 2017 released by the BBC.

Susi was the only Indonesian woman on the annual list, which was unveiled last week.

The publication has so far only revealed 60 names out of the 100.

In addition to Susi, the list also features superwomen from across the globe, such as Harvard psychologist and bestselling author Amy Cuddy, messaging app On Second Thought CEO-slash-co-founder Maci Peterson, football coach Claudianny Drika and more.

BBC said in a statement that some of them will work together in four different cities in October to find the solutions. Meanwhile, others will share their supports and inspirations from their respective locations.
