Historically, Mongolia has been a patriarchal society. However, Mongolian women have exercised greater autonomy and responsibility than women in many other societies. The demanding nomadic lifestyle, combined with the harsh climate and difficult winters of the Mongolian steppe, required that women took an active role in tasks such as horseback riding, making clothes, tending livestocks, milking sheep and goats, making cheese, and preparing food.[1] [2]
