        Women in the Song | The Story of China

        Learn about poet Li Qingzhao and the life of women during the Song Dynasty with this clip from The Story of China. Neo-Confucian values reinforced the idea that a woman's role is subservient to the male's in the family and society. Despite this, women played an instrumental role in Chinese society. Many learned to read and write. Texts were written specifically for women with some women publishing their own books.
