During the years spanning the late Qing dynasty and the early Republican era, the status of Chinese women changed in both subtle and decisive ways. As domestic seclusion ceased to be a sign of virtue, new opportunities emerged for a variety of women. Much scholarly attention has been given to the rise of the modern, independent “new women” during this period. However, far less is known about the stories of married nonprofessional women without modern educations and their public activities.

In At Home in the World, Xia Shi unearths the history of how these women moved out of their sequestered domestic life; engaged in charitable, philanthropic, and religious activities; and repositioned themselves as effective public actors in urban Chinese society. Investigating the lives of individual women as well as organizations such as the YWCA and the Daoyuan, she shows how her protagonists built on the past rather than repudiating it, drawing on broader networks of family, marriage, and friendship and reconfiguring existing beliefs into essential components of modern Chinese gender roles. The book stresses the collective forms of agency these women exercised in their endeavors, highlighting the significance of charitable and philanthropic work as political, social, and civic engagement. Shi also analyzes how men—alive, dead, or absent—both empowered and constrained women’s public ventures. She offers a new perspective on how the public, private, and domestic realms were being remade and rethought in early twentieth-century China, in particular, how the women navigated these developing spheres. At Home in the World sheds new light on how women exerted their influence beyond the home and expands the field of Chinese women’s history.

From the Author

Él es venerado entre los de su especie;un arcángel que no puede cometer errores.Pero cuando las tentaciones y las elecciones surgen,el pedestal se desmorona.Como Arcángel de la muerte, Jeremy está muy orgulloso de su lealtad y de su alto estatus. Desde fuera parece ser merecedor del mayor respeto y admiración por parte de todos, pero solamente él sabe cuál es la verdad. Un secreto que puede destruir a su familia. Sincerarse y sucumbir a sus más ocultos deseos sería una gran traición; una traición a la que jamás podría arriesgarse.Cuando Jeremy recibe una orden que sabe que destrozará a todos los que le importan, se ve forzado a elegir entre la familia y el deber. Su decisión impactará a todos, e incluso a él mismo, y le llevará a una inevitable angustia por todos los que ama.¿Podrá el arcángel que una vez fue venerado llegar a convertirse en uno de los caídos?
