    About

    This image, formerly in the Dubosc Collection, is an example of an early print with revolutionary themes. Education for girls began late in China. In the early twentieth century, some prints in folk-art style urged social reforms, including better education as well as social, political and military participation for girls. James Flath has traced several variants on this subject, from the Xifuxing print shop at Yangliuqing — the present example — to workshops in Wuqiang and Yangjiabu. Here, five girls are being drilled with their rifles by a female instructor. Another version shows an armed cavalry unit. In these two renderings, the girls wear brightly coloured outfits, flowered hats and leather boots on their small but unbound feet. In a later version produced by Yangjiabu’s Gongmao workshop, the girls have tiny feet, apparently bound in embroidered shoes.
