Women and health-related work was also central to the Christian missionary movement, which had a great impact on women’s lives in the Middle East. In a similar manner to the religious- inspired work among the elite women in Egypt, Protestant women in Europe and North America were attracted to missionary work, because it combined a gender-specific, Christian way of life with a degree of freedom denied to women in the West.

The book consists of two parts. The first part looks at 19th century women missionaries as presented in literature, at the backgrounds and experience of women in the mission field and at the attitudes of missionary societies towards their female workers. Although they are traditionally presented as wives and support workers, it becomes apparent that, on the contrary, women missionaries often played a culturally important role

Since the late nineteenth century, women increasingly participated in the mission venture of the Catholic Church. In F. Bowie, D. Kirkwood, & S. Ardener (Ed., Women and missions: Past and present. Anthropological and historical perceptions (pp. 1–22). Providence/Oxford: Berg Publishers.

I would argue that both anthropological and feminist perspectives on re ligion and theology are crucially engaged in understanding and articulating merographic connections. Statements such as "Man is made in the image of God" or "Human beings are created in the image of God," for instance, are dif ferent from one another and acquire a different set of associations from a male and a female perspective. 41 See Bowie, "Christian Missions among the Bangwa" (cited in n. 13); and Fiona Bowie, Deborah Kirkwood, and Shirley Ardener, ed.

This collection of essays by eminent anthropologists, missiologists and historians explores the hitherto neglected topic of women missionaries and the effect of Christian missionary activity upon women. The book consists of two parts. The first part looks at 19th century women missionaries as presented in literature, at the backgrounds and experience of women in the mission field and at the attitudes of missionary societies towards their female workers. Although they are traditionally presented as wives and support workers, it becomes apparent that, on the contrary, women missionaries often played a culturally important role. The second and longest section asks whether women missionaries are indeed a special case, and provides some fascinating studies of the impact of Christian missions on women in both historical material and a wealth of contemporary material.Of particular value is the perspective of those who were themselves objects of missionary activity and who reflected upon this experience. Women actively absorbed and adapted the teachings of the Christian missionaries, and Western models are seen to be utilized and developed in sometimes unexpected ways.
