about this item

This book analyzes the history of Shanghai No. 3 Girls' Middle School in China, from its origins as an American missionary-managed elite school, St. Mary's Hall and McTyeire School, to its present public form in service of all the people in Socialist China. It covers the periods of late imperial, the Republic of China, and the People's Republic of China, and their education policies, political regimes, and women's changing position, as well as women's historical role in the discourse of Chinese nationalism, modernity, and liberation. It emphasizes the gendered effects on privileged urban women in the school in contrast to the assumed passivity of Chinese women, and illustrates the beginning of modern education for them.
