"Women's Activism in Contemporary Russia includes a concise history of women's situation in tsarist and Soviet Russia, which shows how their ability to organize was constrained by social strictures and state policies. The authors analyze how the state-sponsored Soviet Women's Committee and new groups like the Independent Women's Forum, the Women's League, and the International Institute for Entrepreneurial Development responded to the challenges and opportunities of the transition. They also examine the dynamics among these women's groups in Russia and reveal how the personal life histories of the activists reflect the ways women have responded to the changing political, economic, and social landscape in the former Soviet Union."--Jacket." ;
