Show Notes

On the 10th anniversary of the October Revolution in 1927, Alexandra Kollontai published an essay titled, "What Has the October Revolution Done for Women in the West?" In this episode, Kristen Ghodsee reads selections of this essay and reflects on the claim that the Soviet attention to women's emancipation acted as a catalyst for Western countries to grant their own women greater rights and privileges. Mentioned in this episode is Ghodsee's new book, Second World, Second Sex: Socialist Women's Activism and Global Solidarity during the Cold War, 1968-1990, which is just out with Duke University Press.
