Summary
"How could the baba--traditionally, the 'backward' Russian woman--be mobilized as a 'comrade' in the construction of a new state and society? Drawing on recently opened archives, [the author] explains why the Bolsheviks proved unable and ultimately unwilling to realize their ideological notions of a gender-neutral society. Focusing on the creation and activities of the zhenotdel, a special women's section within the Russian Communist Party, [she] reconstructs how notions of gender sameness and difference both facilitated and complicated Bolshevik efforts at state-building during the Civil War and the New Economic Policy"--Page 4 of cover
