The Changing Face of Women's Education in China

A Critical History of St. Mary's Hall, McTyeire School and Shanghai No. 3 Girls' Middle School

By Xiaoyan Liu

This book offers a critical study on the history of Shanghai No.3 Girls' Middle School, from its missionary predecessors, St. Mary's Hall and McTyeire School, to its present form as a public school. By bringing together three historical periods, late imperial, the Republic of China and the People's Republic of China, and their respective political regimes into one project and tracing continuities and discontinuities in terms of education between the Nationalists and Communists, the book argues that education in Chinese modern history affords another example of "continuous revolution."
