9780860914877: Women in Russia: A New Era in Russian Feminism

The collapse of the monolithic Soviet state sounded the death knell for many myths about the Soviet Union. Yet, one of the most persistent misapprehensions continues to thrive. The emancipation of women in the early years of the Societ regime was regarded by many as a simple fact. The most frequently cited proof of equal rights was the large number of women who worked outside the home. But, as the contributors to this volume show, work outside the home became a powerful instrument of enslavement for women, a situaion which continues today. Far from achieving economic and professional equality, women predominate in low-paid and insecure manual positions. Mikhail Gorbachev's policies of glasnost and perestroika did little to further the cause of women's rights. On the contrary, he called for "women to return to their purely womanly mission" - a sentiment echoed by the press - while failing to put in place any social assistance for women who wished to stay at home. Ranging over women's rights in post-Soviet Russia, the role of women in the labour market, women in the political system and the history of feminism in Russia, this book is a useful addition to feminist political study. The contributors include Anastasia Posadskaya, Tatiana Klimenkova, Olga Voronina, Valentina Konstantinova, Yelena Mezentseva, Zoya Khotkina, Olga Lipovskaya, Olga Zhuk and Svetlana Aivazova.
