  • GK was a feminist in that time period

    Yes, he killed in the millions (how else could he have conquered the 2nd largest land mass in history--didn't Spain and the Brits go that route as well?) but he also appointed women to high positions of governing as well as on the battlefield. Out of all the Asian countries of that time period, Mongol women had more rights than in other countries.

  • Yes, I think so.

    Yet the same man who is said to be responsible for the deaths of a world record 40 million is also noted — admittedly less widely — for his religious tolerance, enlightened diplomacy and championing of women’s rights. That culture respected women; Genghis Khan's personal respect for them enabled him to achieve far more than he could have with men alone.

  • No, he was not a feminist.

    Genghis Khan was most definitely not a feminist. Due to political correctness, some historians have tried to re-write history by including more female figures in history. History was dominated by strong men, because strong men were the ones that could overpower everyone else, ruling over societies. Nothing about Genghis Khan suggest that he would have been a feminist.

  • Genghis Khan was far from being feminest.

    It is laughable to think of a war lord such as Genghis Khan as being a feminist, let alone being a person who even cares about women in the least amount. Genghis Khan was a man who is known for his contributions to the battle field as a vicious warrior, with concerns only of bloody victories and power.
