Woman in Soviet Russia

Fannina W. Halle

Women in Soviet Russia (1933) was the first attempt to provide a comprehensive account of the position of women in the Soviet Union. It looks at the history of women's achievements following the 1917 revolution, and of the efforts made by the Communists to establish sex equality between man and woman. This history embraces every activity of women, economical, political, cultural and biological. A survey is provided of women's participation in the civil wars and in the work of the Five Year Plan; of woman's role as mother, wife, worker and political leader; of her position in the home, in the state, and in industry; of the attempts of the Soviets to abolish prostitution; of the establishment of creches and maternity clinics; of the situation with regard to abortion and methods of birth control; of the marriage laws; and, above all, of the development of sex relations in Russia and the emotional life of both old and young Russian women.
