Mongolian women traditionally perceived themselves to have a higher social status than women in many other Asian societies, but were still subordinate to men. Many were herdswomen and mothers, but during the Middle Ages some served as warriors or as members of the Khuriltai, a Mongolian governmental council. Some women even served in commanding roles during military operations.
