CHURCH MISSIONARY SOCIETY ARCHIVE
Section II: Missions to Women

Part 2: India’s Women and China’s Daughters, 1880-1939 and Looking East at India’s Women and China’s Daughters, 1940-1957

Section II: Part 2 brings together a complete run of the detailed, bi-monthly Zenana periodical India’s Women and China’s Daughters, 1880-1939 which then continues as Looking East at India’s Women and China’s Daughters, 1940-1957.

The CEZMS periodical India's Women and China's Daughters provides a rich source of material for the researcher on the role of women missionaries in such a gender dominated society. The extract below from the missionary Miss Haitz gives a feel for the educational work being carried out in Bhagulpur in India in 1894:

"Our average number of schoolchildren...has been 302 and instruction has been given in 89 Zenanas. About 82 villages have been visited...Zenana work has been carried on among Hindus and Mohammedans....and some of our native teachers.... Mrs Chalke has also done a good deal of Zenana visiting. Both we and our Native helpers need every now and then to be reminded that the Enemy is near, lest we get sleepy and careless".
