The essay should surround the buddha statue she commissioned the colossal Buddha, which has feminine features and is one of the first true examples of feminism in an ancient time. The essay should however also cover the wide spread of buddhism throughout china during this time, how the tang dynasty government ruled china as well as the spread of arts and culture along with Buddhism.

Empress Wu and the Spread of Buddhism
Current day developments in China can be attributed to the policies implemented by the Tang dynasty that led to long periods of economic prosperity. The Tang dynasty lasted between 618-907 CE and proceeded by the Sui dynasty and followed by five other dynasties and ten kingdoms. This period is unique in Chinese history because it involved a woman who implemented most of the policies in place of her husband.
