Nobody is talking about Tsai Ing-­wen and I have no idea why. Do you know who this woman is? She’s the FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT OF TAIWAN, OK? SHE’S A BIG. EFFING. DEAL. She’s also the first female leader of a Chinese majority in, like, THIRTEEN HUNDRED YEARS. THAT IS MORE THAN A MILLENIA. Not only is boss babe Tsai Ing­wen a big effing deal, she is proof that we need to take cat­-owning single women WAAAAAAAY more seriously. AND I'LL DRINK TO THAT. 

Here’s what you need to know about HBIC Tsai Ing-­wen:

  1. She won the election by a LANDSLIDE. Like, not the kind of landslide that’s questionably landslidey, either. She won 56.1 percent of the vote, and her closest competitor came in at 31 percent. HAHA! Go, Tsai!

  2. She’s got a masters of law from Cornell and a doctorate from the London School of Economics.

  3. She was a professor of law.

  4. She didn’t get elected through family ties, which many sources have claimed is unusual for her circumstance.

  5. She’s a strong supporter of Taiwan’s independence from China and its separate identity, and promises to reform the pension system and provide affordable housing in Taiwan.

  6. She has two cats named Think Think and Ah Tsai. Which is pretty cute.

One last thing: these journalists keep referring to her as "Ms"? Which is BS? Because she's.... a doctor? And the DPP (Democratic Progressive Party) refers to her as "Dr"? So can we stop with the sexist undermining, world? K thx.
