dc.description.abstractBy comparing Chinese women Daoists in the Tang dynasty, the Song dynasty and the present society, insights of the women’s roles in Daoism are presented. Questions such as how women Daoists were portrayed, how women Daoists interacted with men, and how women Daoists extended the influence of Daoism in Chinese societies were explored. The women Daoists diligently pursued spiritual transcendence through fasting, hidden virtue, good works, ingesting elixirs and most importantly with determination and persistence. They manifested both yin and yang characters in their lives. Their different religious paths are all working towards one truth, to be union with the Dao.
