In the long running patriarchal society where women were always given a back seat, the name Yingluck Shinawatra sets an example of an indomitable woman. Although born in a wealthy, and reputed family with a history in politics, Yingluck has not failed to leave a mark of her own. The start to her career came through the corporate world where she went to great lengths to establish herself as a successful business woman. But being one of the flag bearers of the family with a political lineage, she could not stop herself from entering the world of politics. Often known by her pet name Pu, she went on to become the first female Prime Minister of Thailand with a majority vote. Her government received a warm welcome from the people of Thailand. Although she had to step down later due to certain political pressures, her rise to power and determination to work for people has found a bright place in the pages of history books.
