"This important volume adds a significant number of new and unique materials for teachers at all levels of higher education to use in classroom and seminar discussion about the issues of gender, society, and religion in imperial China."—Benjamin Elman, author of A Cultural History of Civil Examinations in Late Imperial China

"The eighteen primary documents in this anthology, all of them translated for the first time, provide a rich array of sources on the lives of women in China's past. The anthology is important not only for the selection of documents but for the ways it suggests we can think about, and find sources about, women in China. It is must reading for scholars and students alike."—Ann Waltner, author of The World of a Late Ming Visionary: T'an-Yang-Tzu and Her Followers
