Title

The new Soviet woman model or myth

Author

McAndrew, Maggie; Peers, Jo

Description

The Soviet government was the first in the world with a commitment to transform women's role in society. Women often form more than half the labour force, but their participation in the hierarchy has not reflected this. The report describes how and why the full transformation of women's role has not been realized.
