How did Napoleon's Civil Code treat women?
Under Napoleon's Civil Code women were declared to be inferior to men by and children had no rights at all. It recognized civil marriage and divorce but left the wife with restricted powers over property. Minor children had absolutely no rights; the father had absolute control over them. Napoleon said, "The husband must possess the absolute power and right to say to his wife: Madame, you shall not go out, you shall not go to the theater, you shall not visit such and such a person: for the children you bear, they shall be mine."

During the English Civil War, radical Anabaptist sects such asQuakers, Baptists, and Levellers called for the spiritual equalityof women. Officials at the Episcopalian and Pre…sbyterian churchesaccused the groups of ripping apart traditional society. Womenactively protested against the imprisonment of a Leveller leader,even physically attacking Oliver Cromwell and ripping off his coat.This was very radical for women of the time who were expected toobey their fathers and their husbands, without having an opinion oftheir own.
Women would do the chores, nurse their babies, and find food fortheir family. Some women were also abused.

With decency and control. Not much rights as they have now though
The Napolionic Code was highly sexist, proclaiming that women must have their husband's permission and go under his name to appear in court, get a divorce, acquire property, a…nd almost any other legal matter.
The Napoleonic Code.
Women's rights did not truly regress under Napoleon. In fact, they improved slightly. For example, women were given more property rights under the Napoleonic code, and divorce… was legalized. However, in marriages, husbands still had mostly all the power. Like if a husband committed adultery it was not even grounds for divorce unless he brought the mistress home, but if a wife committed adultery, she could be sent to jail for three months.
