This book charts the changing aspects of gender in Russia's cultural and social history from the late 17th century to the collapse of the Soviet Union. The essays, while focusing on women as a primary subject, highlight the construction of both femininity and masculinity in a culture that has undergone major transformation and disruptions over the period of three centuries.

'...this work will be useful for seminar discussions and additional reading in lecture courses.' - Martha Bohachevsky Chomiak, Slavic Review
