Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Sarah's Chinese self-education. During her journey, Sarah met three extraordinary women who embodied her ideals for East-West co-operation: Methodist missionary Gertrude Howe and her Chinese “daughters,” Dr. Mary Stone and Dr. Ida Kahn. These women had given Sarah the key, through their services as interpreters and sources of insider knowledge, to unlock the doors she needed to get behind so that she could meet the real women of China.

Keywords: East-West cooperation; Gertrude Howe; Mary Stone; Ida Kahn; China
