Ancient Chinese women were lesser to men for most
of their lives. First they obeyed there father, and after marriage they answered to their husband. A woman’s duty was to look after her husband, sons and the other men in her life.

things change for women when Mao came to power
After Mao came to power, he gave women more rights. This meant that they could work normal jobs or even be a part of the government. Mao abolished foot binding, now women can walk without being in pain. Because of Mao's changes women and men could work side by side but women were still treated lesser, just not as bad as before.
why did he make these changes
Mao made these changes because he thought that men and women should be treated equally. He thought that you should protect the interests of youth, women and children.
