Stalinism, Eastern Europe and the IMG: Red Heroines

January 24, 2016

 

Red HeroinesThe fourth Communism vs Stalinism pamphlet looked at the place of women in the Soviet Union. It was written by Tamara Volkova with a preface by Branka Magas.

The pamphlet was also one of the subjects of a major review article, entitled Red Heroines, by Tariq Ali in the Guardian Women’s section- 27th February 1976.

Of further interest may be the following journals:

Labour Focus on Eastern Europe- special issue on women

and these two magazines / newsletters of the Women in Eastern Europe group which was largely composed of IMG women.

Women In Eastern Europe June 1979 (Newsletter 3)

Women in Eastern Europe no5 Winter 1982-3
