Wu Zetian (624-705) is the only woman in Chinese history to assume the title of Emperor. She improved education, appointed talented people regardless family status, raised agricultural production, lowered oppressive taxes, & strengthened public works. She campaigned to elevate the status of women, reduced the army's size & aristocratic military men's influence on government by making everyone compete for positions by taking exams, setting the practice of government run by scholars.
