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