Transcript a8 WOMEN IN THE Nor must it be forgotten that as a result of the imperialist and civil wars, our national economy was ruined. Innumerable factories and works were at a standstill, the railways were almost completely out of action. And so while the men were fighting at the front, the working women had to set about restoring our national economy. They made really heroic efforts, expended all their strength to keep factories going, for the general disorder made it impossible to keep the towns regularly supplied with food, fuel, etc. Our women workers were hungry, dressed in rags, But in spite of hunger and suffering, in spite of serious epidemics, the working women gave themselves up completely to defending the achievements of October. Peaceful, constructive work of the Soviet Government only began about five years ago. But when peace came to the country, women workers and peasants became the object of special care on the part of the Soviet State. Everything possible was done to give them the possibility of sharing in the work of socialist construction. Nurseries were organised, attached to factories, so that the working mother could carry on her work without worrying. Kindergartens, communal kitchens and laundries liberated women from the burdens of the house and enabled them to take active part in public and political life. Great attention was also devoted to raising the political and cultural level of the masses. For this purpose delegate meetings of women workers and peasants were organised whose special duty it was to train women in public work and guide them them when they first took up such work. Special schools, study circles and lectures were organised to abolish illiteracy.
