Transcript It should be added that Baku and Grosny are not the only areas in which housing schemes arc being carried out, in every part of the Union we visited we saw similar activities. As far as possible a modern drainage system is being introduced, and garden cities with the British and American type of house are being planned and constructed. The wives of the oil workers in Grozny and Baku do not, as a rule, go out to work, as the labour in the oilfields is quite unsuitable ; and whether as a result of this or not, we found in our conversations with them that they were by far more backward politically and educationally than their sisters in the factory towns, and even than many a peasant woman we came across. They were invariably very pleased with their new houses, but they knew little of trade union, soviet, or other public activities—probably this is another case for "shooting the men !" In the centre of the town of Baku we met many women textile and other workers who were extremely intelligent and active trade union party and soviet workers, many of them were native Eastern women, and some of these showed us round the Central Model Club in Baku for Eastern women which has a membership of 2,000 working women. Attached to the club is a creche, dispensary, and workshops for the teaching of all kinds of handicrafts, including bookbinding, sewing, embroidery, shoe-making, &c. In addition, there are educational courses which prepare women forthe Workers' Faculties, the Teachers'Training Colleges, and Soviet Party schools. There are also musical and dramatic circles. It should be noted that separate clubs for women are the exception. They are only organised for the women of the East or of the backward nationalities. In the case of these women it would be impossible at the present stage to attract them in anything like large numbers to participate in a club or meetings at which men were present. They have only just begun to learn to look at the world with their own eyes, freely and not merely from behind a veil. (24) .
