Clark was not the only male supporter of separate woman’s boards within the American Board. In 1870 there was a male missionary of ABCFM stating the need for single women missionaries. Bushnell, a missionary at the Gaboon mission in Ethiopia spoke “what he supposed to be the duty of a Woman’s Board of Missions” at the public meeting held in the evening of WBMI’s second annual meeting in 1870: In the matter of obtaining funds,…women can engage with good results. Another work for woman is to cultivate a missionary sentiment among the people and make it popular with the people.
One was the Secretary who with tears running down his cheeks would talk in public meeting of the work the “dear ladies” were doing. We did not care to be called “dear ladies” and we never could understand the cause of his weeping. 40 More than two decades later, in 1900, Helen Barret Montgomery, a chief missionary spokeswoman in the twentieth century, also “utterly rejected” the image of woman as “the vine clinging to the sturdy oak [man]” popularly used by the male officers of the ABCFM to persuade the women that woman’s work was subordinate and complementary to men’s work.
The goal or purposes of ABCFM changed from pure evangelism to expanded notion of evangelism, which accepted education as an effective means. This cultural transformation was, however, a slow and painful process, which contrasted sharply with the women of WBMI who conceived of evangelism as integrally linked with education from the outset. Clark’s administration as the Foreign Secretary of the ABCFM between 1866 and 1894, the push for the training of a native ministry promoted the educational work of the missions.
