Chinese Women in a Male Dominated World The view of women in china may have changed over the years but they all have lived in a male dominated world The past has been like many cultures in the legal and cultural suppression of women The culture of chinas past has placed women as a far inferior position to men In this environment gaining power and rights was extremely difficult Despite this there are stories of important and powerful women in chinas history This is different than many cultures of the world where the suppression of womens rights was total through their history The culture has become more open to womens rights over the years allowing for more power and more control for them as they years went on Education has slowly been allowed along with greater human rights Modern women are allowed to travel be educated marry and be the sole wife They commonly participate in politics as well as all other fields of work Women of modern times in china have greater possibilities and fewer limitations but things are not perfect there is still a social bias lingering from past inequality The women of chinas past lived in an intensely male dominated world Men dominated china both in law and in culture Legally women were in servitude to men in the forms of marriage polygamy was common practice for men For the most part women did not ever participate in the governing of the country There were Dynasties that were less conservative women were allowed more power at times This is evidenced by the rule of Empress Wu She rose to power from the status of concubine to rule china This was more exceptional rather than the rule When the Sung dynasty took over men dominated again Any ability of women to gain political power was taken away It is in the culture that the real domination can be seen
