Indian women will struggle to follow PepsiCo boss Indra Nooyi

Despite reforms, many barriers remain to female empowerment in business

| India
Indra Nooyi, who is stepping down as PepsiCo CEO, has been the posterchild of possibilities for women in India.

Working as a business journalist, I have interviewed chief executives, founders and billionaires. Nearly all have been men.

The news that Indra Nooyi, an Indian-born woman, will step down in October as chief executive of PepsiCo, means there is one less female in a top corporate job. And one less chance for me to interview a female boss.
