10 page/Double spaced/ MLA

Question: How did the Mao era influence women’s rights in China? Why was the Communist Revolution significant in terms of bringing concepts of gender equality and sameness? 

Working Thesis: Despite the failures Mao Zedong’s policies’ such as the Great Leap Forward in 1958 and the Cultural Revolution in mid-1966, Mao did succeed in implementing numerous radical ideas in giving attention to women’s rights. In this paper, I will argue the significance of the Communist Revolution in regard to the development of China’s Women’s Movement, which made changes to the woman’s status and promoted gender equality with the rise of Mao Zedong.
