AUTHOR

Goldman, Wendy Z.

SUMMARY

When the Bolsheviks came to power in 1917, they believed that under socialism the family would 'wither away.' They envisioned a society in which communal dining halls, daycare centres, and public laundries would replace the unpaid labour of women in the home. Yet by 1936 legislation designed to liberate women from their legal and economic dependence had given way to increasingly conservative solutions aimed at strengthening traditional family ties and women's reproductive role. This book explains the reversal, focusing on how women, peasants, and orphans responded to Bolshevik attempts to remake the family, and how their opinions and experiences in turn were used by the state to meet its own needs.Goldman, Wendy Z. is the author of 'Women, the State and Revolution: Soviet Family Policy and Social Life, 1917-1936', published 1993 under ISBN 9780521458160 and ISBN 0521458161.
