Russian Women and Their Organizations : Gender, Discrimination and Grassroots Women's Organizations, 1991-96, Hardback Book

Russian Women and Their Organizations : Gender, Discrimination and Grassroots Women's Organizations, 1991-96 Hardback

Description

Grassroots Russian women's organizations faced multiple challenges in the early 1990s.

Like their members, they were confronted with both potentially hostile attitudes and numerous practical difficulties.

Post-Soviet ideologies of gender difference produced a gender climate which was particularly unsympathetic to female activism in support of other women.

This book presents a detailed study of grassroots Russian women's organizations in 1991-96, against the background of a careful analysis of gender relations and attitudes to women's place in post-Soviet Russian society.
