Salute to outrageous patriots working for the Red Cross.  Young Communist Valentine Shimayeva is a nurse at a blood transfusion station who helped the injured during the Nazi bombardment. Lyudmila Maslihina, a student, saved a small child from fire. Lidiya Fyodorova knows how to deal with flame bombs, during the Nazi raid she participated in the process of fire extinguishing.

  1. 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.

    • 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.

    • Spiridonova behaved like a heroine in prison, but until revolution she was a terrorist who killed innocent people, in 1906 she killed an ordinary low-rank government official. She was sentenced to death which was replaced to life in prison. So she brought her destiny on herself. I think when her former colleagues communists shot her in the woods in 1941, she may have wished she had been hanged in 1906 instead of watching her native country decimated by the likes of her.

  2. “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.”

  3. Courageous, instead of outrageous. Also interesting to learn that tractor is the same borrowed word in both russian and english.

  4. 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”.

  5. Beautiful post! Only one kind information: the word “outrageous” has an extremely negative connotation in English and is not a compliment.
