Research Summary

My manuscript entitled, _Gendered Power: Educated Women from the Meiji Empresses’ Salon (1890-1930)_ examines the sources and execution of power held by women of the Meiji Empress Shōken’s court. This project considers the power and influence held by Meiji women, particularly those linked to the Meiji empress, to engineer educational and social structures that had lasting influence on the lives and identities of women of Japan and within the Japanese empire.
