Religious Education Leading to Higher Education for Women: Historical Insights on Modern Japan
Omori, Hideko
Religious Education, v108 n5 p529-541 2013
This article discusses what kinds of religious education led to the improvement of women's status and the realization of higher education for women in modern Japan, by reconsidering the educational views of Jinzo Naruse (1859-1919), both a pioneer of Japanese women's education and a promoter of the Concordia movement (1912-1941), within the national context. Comparing his publications and social actions with those of contemporary Christians in Japan and examining his stance in the Association Concordia provides insights on what the present-day religious education should be.
