Muslim Women Have Own Mosques in China

The Chinese tradition of active participation of Muslim women goes back to the Ming Dynasty, 1368-1644, when the first schools for females of that religion were created and places of prayer were reserved for women and presided over by female imams.

Local researchers point out that although Lulan mosque is the only one for women in Lanzahou, in Zhengzhou, capital of Henan province, there are 19. The exact number operating in China is unknown because most are affiliated with traditional places of worship. [source]

not to mention that the research suggests that women are better educated in mosques that are for women, like this Lulan mosque. this is so awesome.
