This essay focuses on Chinese women from North-Western China (the Chinese part of the Silk Road) under the Tang dynasty (618-907). It describes the main outlines of their everyday life, and study more closely the impact of the Silk Road ? and its related cultural interactions ? on their lives. In this respect, the Tang dynasty is the most interesting period because trade and cultural interactions were at its pinnacle. Thus, I will try to determine to what extent the reign of the traditional, Confucian frame defining women's role was subdued by the influence of foreign cultures
