Transcript SOVIET UNION 13 the very heart of the working masses of the Union, the Congress delegates met in the brilliant coronation hall of the Tsarist palace. From the factories and villages they came, they who had for centuries been enslaved and exploited. These new masters spoke a new language, spoke of new work. Not in their words, but in their deeds they refuted that corrupt bourgeois morality which assigns to women a place among the exploited and oppressed, which maintains that politics " aren't for women." The International Women's delegation which accompanied the Union Congress afforded a brilliant opportunity for seeing and hearing from the mouths of a thousand women, that the Soviet Power, fulfilling Lenin's bequest and drawing working women into the work of socialist construction, has obtained great practical results. Nine years ago, on the first anniversary of the October revolution, there was also a congress of women workers and peasants. At that time there was but little possibility for women Soviet workers to meet together. It was a grave time. When young Russia was shedding its blood on all fronts in the struggle against the superior forces of the enemy. Nevertheless, despite the difficulties of transport, despite hunger and need, hundreds of delegates came to Moscow from the workshops and villages, at the call of the Communist Party, came to learn what were their duties and what they, women, could do to defend the Soviet Power. There, at that Congress, the foundation-stone was laid for the work of drawing the women masses into the activities of the Soviets. The nine years show tremendous progress.
