Transcript WOMEN IN THE accept the place assigned them by historical events is scarcely credible. Their faces reflect confident peace and security, fitness for their work. There is the peasant woman from Nizhni-Novgorod. Tall and broad, with angular face, a handkerchief knotted round her head and wearing a broad jacket, she stands behind the speaker's dais like a colossal figure, arms and hands expressing the passionate speech of her heart. " You must not think," she cries, "that this hall, filled with marble and gold, makes a great impression on us, or awes us in the least. We, the working people, built this palace for the Tsars with our hands and in the sweat of our brows—it does not impress us. We shall not build such castles for ourselves, we are building for ourselves the socialist State, our State of workers and peasants." The impression made on these women and their consciousness of the mighty, varied unity which they represented was expressed by a peasant woman from Samara in the following simple words: " The greatest thing which the Congress means to me," she said, "is that i know now for the first time what a great country ours is—so many peoples, so many languages, so many colours and costumes. I had no idea at all until now, I only knew my little village—but we are such a grand Union !"—an Eastern International in itself—that is the Union of Soviet Republics: that impression is instantly given by the sight of these hundred peoples, brimming with strength, creating with firm hands, directing and urging fresh impulses along new roads. Peoples, here represented by women, whose thoughts have been set in motion and can never again be held back. r !l \
