From Slave Girls to Salvation: Gender, Race, and Victoria's Chinese Rescue Home, 1886-1923

 
9780774830560: From Slave Girls to Salvation: Gender, Race, and Victoria's Chinese Rescue Home, 1886-1923

For decades, the Chinese Rescue Homewas a fixture of the landscape of Victoria, British Columbia. Originally a refuge for Chinese prostitutes and slave girls rescued from captivity, it became a residence and school where the Methodist Woman's Missionary Society attempted to reform Chinese and Japanese girls and women.They did this, in part, by teaching them domestic skills meant to ease their integration into Western society. This book offers the first in-depth history and analysis of this iconic institution from 1886 to 1923 and expands our understanding of the complex interplay between gender, race, and class in BC during this time.
