Transcript SOVIET UNION 27 legislation. The working population, particularly the male section, had to be made to understand that in Soviet law the woman possesses the same rights as the man. The work of the Soviet Power in these past ten years has been in these two directions—supporting women workers and peasants in the exercise of their rights, and spreading the idea of equality among the working masses. What has been accomplished in those ten years ? A year after the establishment of the Soviet Power, there was the first congress of women workers and peasants, organised by comrade Kollontai, who is here to-day. The most important task of that Congress was to awaken the women masses, to tell them what the October revolution meant to women workers and peasants, to teach them to make use of the new laws. All the delegates to that Congress made the best propagandists for the Soviet Power in the country, among working women. In addition the Congress dealt with the defence of the Soviet State. You, who are delegates from abroad, must not forget that the first years of the Soviet Power were also years of bitter civil warfare. For the first four years of its existence, our Soviet Union was surrounded by foes. The working class, led by the Communist Party and in alliance with the peasantry, had to give their lives and possessions for the defence of October. The first Congress of women workers and peasants helped to mobilise large numbers of working women for the struggle, helped to make them active defenders and warriors for the cause of the proletarian revolution.
