Anne Marie, Eliza, and Maude: Single Girls in the Good-Old Boy World of Missions

by Ruth A. Tucker | July 31, 2008

This session features the fascinating stories of three missionaries to Africa: Anne Marie Javouhey (a French Catholic nun, founder of the Sisters of St. Joseph), Eliza Davis George (a black woman from Texas and founder of the Elizabeth Native Interior Mission), and Maude Cary (a Kansas farm girl with a “call” to bring the gospel to Muslims in Morocco)—all facing gender discrimination and all responding in very different ways.
