Women at that time did not allowed outside home, even stay in her room or kitchen. This condition motivates Kiai Haji Ahmad Dahlan to change gradually. From the foundation of Muhammadiyah, Ahmad Dahlan have serve his house and time to women teaching, where he himself teaching or sometimes substituted by his wife, that also have fluent in Islamic knowledge.
