Transcript Women Members of Factory Committs ES October 1, 1923 April , 1924 Groups of Unions Number of women Per cent. to total committee members Number of women Per cent. to total committee members Industrial Transport Agricultural State and Public Institutions Others 805 153 106 1,610 138 11-3 8-2 90 21-7 10-4 ' 1,323 210 207 3.221 277 12-9 8-3 8-6 26-8 14-8 Totai 2,812 14-9 5,238 18 0 In the Central Executives of the unions, the number of women is, of course, not nearly so great, but the proportion of women has risen from 3-6 per cent, in January, 1923, to 4-3 per cent, in July, 1924. In the Presidiums of the Executives (standing committees which carry out the work of the Executives between the sessions of the latter) the proportion has risen from 1*5 per cent, in January, 1923, to 2-1 percent, in July, 1924. It should, of course, be borne in mind, as we have stated before, that the proportion of active women workers in all departments of the Soviet trade union movement has increased considerably during the last year, but the data is not yet available. In general, the trade unions endeavour to interest and attract women workers to trade union work not specially as women but as workers, but in view of the more backward state of the women workers—special meetings of the latter are called, without in any way weakening the efforts to get women to attend general trade union meetings for both men and women. In addition, in factories or institutions in which the women workers do not take a comparatively active part in the factory workshop committees and its various commissions a special member of the committee on full or part time—depending on the number of women workers employed in the enterprise—is assigned for organising and educational work amongst the women workers.
