Lady Tan's Circle of Women by Lisa See - presented by NBPL Foundation
According to Confucius, “an educated woman is a worthless woman,” but Tan Yunxian—born into an elite is being taught by her grandmother who is one of only a handful of female doctors in China. But when Yunxian is married, she is banned from practicing medicine and instead is to act like a proper wife.
How might a woman like Yunxian break free of these traditions, go on to treat women and girls from every level of society, and lead a life of such importance that many of her remedies are still used five centuries later? Lady Tan’s Circle of Women is a captivating story of women helping other women.
