Nushu (女書)

Omniglot: "Nushu is a script created and used exclusively by women in Jiang Yong Prefecture, Hunan Province, China. The women were forbidden formal education for many centuries and developed the Nushu script in order to communicate with one another. They embroidered the script into cloth and wrote it in books and on paper fans."
