Chapter 2 introduces the “Republican Ladies” who were both the moving target of and important contributors to the journal. Consisting of three demographics—older, genteel women; professionals; and students—these women represent the first generation of respectable, public Chinese women. Emblems of the new Republic, they do not map onto the familiar categories of “women of talent,” “new women,” or “modern girls.” Denied the formal vote by the Republican regime, their actualization as informal citizens was, in part, dependent on the opportunity to write for journals like Funü shibao. The publication of Funü shibao was, in turn, dependent on this process of female actualization. The chapter devises methods for discerning which writings in the journal were definitively by women.
