Transcript 44 WOMEN IN THE you, in a few words, what I have seen and learnt during my five weeks' stay in Russia. The October revolution freed women from the capitalist yoke, and they realised that the equality which the revolution gave them, gives them also a part to play and duties to perform in political and social life. Women workers and peasants have to thank their own persistent, harmonious work for what they have won. It gave us great joy to see this equality for women realised in practice in the factories we visited, to hear from the women themselves that they get equal pay for equal work, which will never be possible in the capitalist economic system. We were also impressed by the institution which freed women from the burdens of the household. One of the best of these is the nursery. How happily a woman can work here, for she has constantly before her eyes the fruits of her labour. She need not be afraid of deprivation during pregnancy, but can look calmly into the future, sure that both she and her child will be well cared for. [Comrade Krause described the inadequacy of the provision made for mother and child welfare in Germany, and of what she had observed in this connection in the Soviet Union. There the institutions not only help the mother and child, but by their influence also raise the cultural level of the working masses. Women particularly capable in these matters work in the Commissariats for health and popular education. The Commissariat for Health pays particular attention to the welfare of mother and child and to sanitary provisions in factories.
