Look through some Soviet posters issued during and shortly after the World War II.
Sorry, Poster #20 features Vasili Zaitsev, excellent!
Actually, Soviet Russia used to be progressive in many ways, till it got to Btrezhnev, when it was practically frozen….
Stalinism did not treat women equally in peacetime. Stalin really wanted women to be babushkas and support men. He banned abortions in 1936. He did not trust his comrades’ wives (Mrs. Molotov, for example), he sent innocent women to the camps (if he believed their husbands were enemies- Anna Larina, for example); he was frightened of intelligent, independent women- killing Olga Kameneva and torturing and murdering Comrade Maria Spiridonova, a true heroine.
Thanks for putting thinks in perspective. Allowing women to take on these duties was a matter of necessity for Stalin, not enlightenment about a woman’s role in society.
You get negative votes for bashing Stalin? Hmm, maybe you should change your handle?
Stalin is a HERO for a lot of Putinjugend.
How many millions died as a result of forced collectivization in the Soviet Union under Stalin? The kulaks, the ones with brains and ambition to run an efficient farm, were forced onto large, collectives which were run by drunken, low lifes empowered by Stalin, result: mass famine and cannibalism. What lies these posters represent. Socialism, suffered a blow from which it will never recover from these policies. The Bolsheviks stole the land from people who, over centuries, earned the land they worked, the people starved.
Tell me what Archie Bunka died in the Soviet Union if the country does not have its own aircraft, automotive, machine building, electronics industry? If illiteracy reached 65 percent of the adult population, which could oppose these men against tanks, bombers, small arms.
Why hunger in tsarist Russia was regularly while no one should not harm the kulaks
Are you comrade Trotskyist?
“Only the country where men and women have equal rights will win.”
I hope every feminist had this mind. not “Woman is superior to man.” or “woman is weak, so woman don’t have to do hard work.”
Courageous, instead of outrageous. Also interesting to learn that tractor is the same borrowed word in both russian and english.
Plummeting birth rates and demographic oblivion belongs to the country where woman is equal to man!
The idea of women being equal is frowned on by nearly half the world, that is the PRIMITIVE half.
Like Mr. Fox says not weaker or stronger just “Equal”.
This is small silly thing but this is how I see it.
Women is Love then wisdom. Man is Wisdom then love.
Equal but different
Where is Lydia Litvyak?
Very interesting pics.
Beautiful post! Only one kind information: the word “outrageous” has an extremely negative connotation in English and is not a compliment.
Awesome pics, like them all very much!!!
