As I mentioned, I am interested in the structure of the sentence as well as whether to use the preterite or the imperfect tense.

En el pasado no les permitían a los mujers hacer muchas cosas fuera de la casa.

The imperfect because you are describing what used to go on. The length of time and the number of times that it happened are not important. smile
