Japanese Girls and Women is a book by Alice Mabel Bacon that was first published in 1891. The author was an American foreign advisor to the Japanese government in mid-nineteenth, early-twentieth century Japan. After receiving an invitation to serve as a teacher at a school for girls in 1888, Bacon found herself going back again in 1900 to help establish the Joshi Eigaku Juku (Women's English Preparatory School). This book gives information about the life of Japanese women and girls in respect to subjects such as childhood, education, marriage, being a wife and mother, old age, samurai women, peasant women, court life, life in the cities, and domestic service.

This book has 130 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1891.
