Book Details

FEMALE EDUCATION.. Ladies' Association for the Promotion of Female Education in India and other heathen countries, in connection with the missions of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. Leaflets, no.71-Progress in 1883.1883

N.P., [London?], 8vo, slight foxing of the text, 4 pp., folded as issued. The Zenana mission commenced in Calcutta in 1870 and other Zenana missions were set up in Delhi, Cawnpore, Madras, Tanjore, Lahore, Roorkee, Bombay and other large towns and cities. The missions were run by women missionaries to Indian women in their own homes, with the aim of converting them to Christianity. By the 1880s, the "Zenana missions" became dedicated to providing Indian women with medical help in their own homes. This involved recruiting female doctors, both by persuading female doctors in Europe to come to India and by encouraging Indian women to study medicine.
