No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


In this compelling biography, Barbara Rose tells the story of Tsuda Umeko, an American-educated Japanese woman who founded the first institution of higher education for women in Japan. Setting Tsuda's life and achievements in the context of the women's movements and the ideology of female domesticity in turn-of-the-century America and Japan, Rose shows how Tsuda's experiences illustrate the contradictions and ironies behind Japan's changing views of women and the West.
