Chapter Summary

The Shenbaoguan made a point to have Chinese individuals as journalists and editors in responsible positions and to hire Chinese printers instead of Portuguese printers. By publishing newspapers and periodicals as well as books both by and about Chinese women, the Shenbaoguan made their lives into topics of debate, writing openly about the hollow rituals that constrained them and advocating new approaches to their education. Shenbao article compares China?s insistence on proper ritual with the desperate attempts of the ancient state of Lu to compensate with over- zealous ritual correctness its actual weakness, which had become the laughingstock of the other kingdoms during the Spring and Autumn period. The Shenbaoguan also made a point to publish books by and about women. One such work was the Lidai mingyuan tushuo, which came out in September 1879.
