Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses one important facet of reform in the capital: the more or less simultaneous development of pictorial publications and girls' schools after 1900. What was the relationship between these two components of the New Learning, and what does an examination of the two tell us about educational and gender issues in late Qing China? Gender-based novels of the period, such as Siqi zhai?s 思綺齋 Nüzi quan 女子權 and Zhongguo xin nühao 中國新女豪, had great appeal to female students in the capital, with their descriptions of women who attended high school in Beijing, traveled to America, studied in Japan, and returned to establish training schools for women laborers. But for a less dramatic and more reliable source of information on women?s schools and their students, we may turn to pictorials, which were designed expressly for Chinese women and children. .
