I noticed a few concepts within Chinese myth to differ greatly from other myths. One of the most important differences to me is the power shift from males to females. Female goddesses tend to play a bigger role in Chinese mythology than their male counterparts. This seems to be very uncommon within Ancient Europe as most myths relied on male dominance and the control of power. This change in the myths occurred when more political forces started to assert themselves within China. These changes include; the shift of the female role to more males dominant characters, as well as the creation and introduction of male heroes into Chinese mythology.
