“Education” to obscure academic women in Japan
In the intellectual history in modern Japan, women have been dwarfed in the position to be remembered by posterity as “educators,” whatever their specialty. Professionalism is completely ignored and only a life dedicated to girls’ education is celebrated. People who become experts are treated as second-rate. It’s “institutionalized mansplaining.”
The most significant example: Tsuda Ume. She established Tsuda College and empower Japanese women through her life. She was one of the first five women, who were brilliant and carefully selected to study the Western culture in the United States. She was only five years old when she left Japan, and successfully graduated from the Bryn Mawr College in 1890.The college, however, just remarks on her as “become English teachers, to enlighten other Japanese women” not mentioning her academic area at all. In fact, she did not just study biology and education in the Bryn Mawr, but also published an academic article in biology: Morgan, T. H., and Ume Tsuda. “The orientation of the frog’s egg.” QJ Microsc Sci 35 (1894): 373-405.
Another example is Yasui Tetsu. She studied philosophy in the United Kingdom, but also is remembered only as an educator
