Stalin’s views toward Women
Greetings Podcast listeners! Welcome to History: From One Student to Another and another episode from my series on Stalin’s Russia.
In this episode, we will look at the policies and views of Stalin toward women.
If you remember from Nazi Germany and Mussolini’s Italy, women were treated as a whole different class to men and had a specific set of ideals put upon them. But in Stalin’s Russia, there were fundamental differences in how he viewed women, as compared with Mussolini and Hitler.
In fact, before 1924, the Soviet government had tried to liberate women and establish gender equality as they took steps to weaken the traditional family structure which exploited women. Left-feminist Bolshevik leaders, like Alexandra Kollontai, were the frontrunners in advocating for quality, although Lenin’s views remained somewhat conservative.
For this episode, I will begin by observing a number of policies of The Soviet Socialist Republic, under both Lenin and Stalin. Later, we will be looking at the roles of women in employment.
Over the next couple of months, I will be self-studying Stalin's Russia. New episodes will be released every Tuesday (and on some Fridays)!
