Transcript i Introduction ON the return of the Trade Union Delegation from Russia last December, it was generally felt that interesting as was their report, nevertheless the general impression of present day Russia was incomplete, in that the delegation had not included women, who it might be urged would be quick to appreciate conditions affecting the work, health and general conditions of women and children in Russia. Hence arose the idea of a women's delegation. This delegation consisted of four delegates representing the printing, garment workers, textile trades and a representative of the transport and general workers. It was accompanied by an advisory delegate and clerical secretary. The delegation left England April 23, arriving in Moscow on the morning of April 27. On April 30, two of the delegates went to Leningrad to witness the May Day celebrations in that town. On May 3, the rest of the delegation left Moscow for Leningrad, stopping there until May 8, after which the whole delegation returned to Moscow, stopping at Tver for one day. After spending a few more days in Moscow, the whole delegation left for Kharkov, visiting subsequently the Crimea, Balaclava, Sebastopol, Rostov-on-Don, Kislovodsk, Grozny, Raku, Tiflis, Borzhom, Abas-Tuman, and by way of the Georgian Military Road, to Vladikavkaz, whence it went back direct to Moscow, and after spending a few more days there, left for England, arriving in London on July 4. In so far as our experiences in Russia cover much the same ground as that already dealt with in the men's report, we shall as far as possible refrain from reiterating facts already dealt with in the latter, only emphasising such of our impressions and such results of our investigations as refer more particularly to the life of women and children. From the moment when the delegation arrived in Riga and was met by the Soviet Ambassador and women representatives of the All-Russian Council of Trade Unions, it received every facility and assistance for carrying out its work of investigation. On arrival in Moscow the delegation intimated the exact purpose of its visit to the U.S.S.R. and the main institutions and industries as well as the parts of the country it desired to visit, an approximate programme was then drawn up by the representatives of the All-Russian Council of Trade Unions which the delegation freely discussed and altered to suit its requirements. A similar procedure was followed in every town visited by the delegation. Whilst the local trade union and Soviet Authorities made suggestions, it was the delegation itself who decided where they should go, and what they should see, the authorities always providing all the necessary facilities. Beginning with the Sebezh frontier, the delegation was met everywhere with the greatest enthusiasm and friendliness by the workers. In every town we visited, the delegation was overwhelmed by invitations from workers to visit their factories and their clubs. Red Army soldiers, officers and sailors, requested visits to their headquarters, clubs and exercise grounds. Teachers wished us to visit their schools ; nurses and doctors (1)
