LOL okay that's a good one... but only if she's Asian. Sorry but I've never heard a non-Asian woman get tagged with that nickname.
A riot is an ugly thing.... and I think it's just about time we had one.

well, it is interesting.  we do have a word for the successful Asian woman.

suppose you are a journalist from a business magazine, say, business week. and plan to write a cover story about  the Fiorina, Ex-HP CEO. For some reason, you would like to stress that it was very successful  for to become the head of such a big comany as a woman. How would you describe her if using a single word(noun).
