Kuo Siu-may (1916–1995) is best known as the wife of Bishop K. H. Ting (1915–2012). In previous studies she has generally been cast in the shadow of her husband. Kuo Siu-may was educated in Anglican schools and her life and work may be seen as part of the development of the Chung Hua Sheng Kung Hui (CHSKH) and of Chinese history as a whole. She also transcended this framework and developed her own role in society. This chapter considers Kuo Siu-may as an independent individual in her own right and interpret her role as an Anglican woman intellectual in pre- and post-liberation China from different perspectives. This chapter offers a different perspective on the role of Anglican women beyond the confines of the Church and opens up a new area of scholarly research.

Keywords:   Kuo Siu-may, Bishop K. H. Ting, woman intellectual, Anglican education, social service
