The Impact of Maoist Policies on Women in China

  • Maoist policies are Communist policies through the understanding of Mao Zedong, the leader of the Chinese Communist victory in China in 1949

  • Mao believed in Marxism but he modified it – in that he believed that an agriculture nation of peasants could experience Communist revolution without an industrial phase

  • However, like all Communists, Mao believed in the equality of women and so, the Confucian beliefs that had relegated women to the inferior status was lifted

  • Maoist policies banned arranged marriages and made women an important part of the Communist women’s movement

  • Maoist policies like banning arranged marriages led to the most dramatic change in the status of Chinese peasant women in the 1940’s and 1950’s
