Presbyterian Missionary Society in detail, but here I will also examine some Catholic women missionaries and Irish women who worked in secular organisations like the Dufferin Fund. There had been cries for women doctors for India since 1882, when Frances Hoggan, one of the first licentiates of the King and Queen’s College of Physicians of Ireland, published her paper ‘Medical women for India’, in which she argued that the medical needs of Indian women were not being met by the new civil wing of the Indian Medical Service, which had been established in 1880 in order to

, their embracing of supernatural manifestations was likely to have a particular edge in an era when Protestants rejected such phenomena. At a time when Catholic beliefs were under attack, visions or revelations provided Catholic women with a means to verify and vindicate their faith.

society began in the home and women were responsible for ensuring that their children grew up to be good social citizens and good Christians.52 The domesticity of Catholic women was prioritised in an effort to ensure the transmission of the faith to their children.

Canada for its part agreed to the usual aftercare, though in the case of single young women the arrangements were more extensive and included close supervision and temporary accommodation at government-subsidised hostels run by the YWCA, the Catholic Women’s League and other organisations.
