Catching up to the future

My predictions about religion were for the most part on track. China was very isolationist during this time so it’s understandable that Christianity died and neo-Confucianism becomes entrenched.

My predictions about gender role were slightly off. My prediction that it would become even more patriarchal were correct. I had said there was a very small chance the patriarchy would ease up a little but that was obviously wrong. Maybe the Manchus would allow some new ideas in, but they just adopted traditional TRADITIONAL Chinese values so obviously patriarchal society was strengthened.
