Abigail Rochelle Marshall Townsend (born May 4, 1969) is an American businesswoman, entrepreneur, and lawyer from the Chicago, Illinois. Townsend is the co-head of the international corporate entity known as Pravus International, and one of the wealthiest women in the world. Famed for being one of the most powerful people in the world, Abigail Townsend has been held as a model for women everywhere seeking to enter business and law, two areas in which she has been highly successful despite problems arising from her race and gender. She is currently married to Alistair Townsend, the head of the construction magnate Eckstein Company, purchased by Pravus in 2002.

Though she is a popular figure for women's self-determination movements around the world, her pro-life views on abortion have earned her some backlash from some feminists groups. Despite this, she is still highly respected for her work to further the rights of women in most parts of the globe, more recently being in Pakistan following the attack on a young girl seeking to gain an education. Townsend made a promise to see to it that women there are given access to schools and universities without the threat of violence directed against them. She also donated $45 million dollars to causes deticated to the furthering of women's rights.

Townsend's personal views of race equality are rather difficult to determine, as she openly critised European governments for their lack of real assistance to the Africannations they once controlled. Like her cousin Julius Marshall, Townsend is a staunch Pan-Africanist, and has been highly critical of the plight of white Africans, such as those in Zimbabwe and South Africa, whom she has referred to as "getting was they had coming for centuries." Though this is a black mark on her public image, she is still regarded as the moral force behind Pravus, who's own operations and agendas have come under scrutiny in the recent past.
