About the Event

Umeko Tsuda was a pioneering woman educator in Meiji era Japan. This talk will trace her footsteps as one of the first female students sent to the U.S. by the Japanese government in 1871 and focus on her transnational collaboration with U.S. women in founding Tsuda College (now Tsuda University). In doing so, the speaker will demonstrate why Umeko Tsuda’s image was chosen as the face of the new 5000 yen banknote, which will be issued in 2024.
