I am glad to hear of this, but the Communist government must have some hand in the affairs of the religious communities. I do see and celebrate this as a form of freedom, but as we have seen the only forms of religion allowed in China are those that are sanctioned by the Communist government. I don't really think that this is freedom in the whole sense and cynically I wonder how much the government is taking credit for these "changes" in public gender roles within religion, namely Islam.
