Transcript mothers to take their children there before they start work on the land, and only close on the return of the mothers from work. As in the factory nurseries, so here, the children are fed, looked after, and receive all the necessary medical attention free of charge. At first, some of the peasant women looked with disfavour on the organisation of these nurseries, but now more and more of them are getting interested and actively help both in organising and in running such nurseries. By common consent the village nurseries are now looked upon as a great boon for the child and for the mother who is compelled to work. The extent to which peasant women are beginning to take part in trade union work is shown by the fact that in the local committees of the Batrak or hired workers' section of the Land and Forest Workers' Union the proportion of women elected June 1,1924, was 8-6 per cent. In the administrative committees of the district departments of the same trade union, 9 per cent, were women. In the administrative committees of the provincial departments the number of women was 5-7 per cent, and by January 1, 1925, the proportion had increased to 6-3 per cent. Illiteracy amongst this class of peasant women workers is being gradually stamped out. Schools for illiterates are organised in connection with practically every local branch of the Land and Forest Workers' Union, and there are now over 11,000 such centres. The executive of the union is distributing first readers free to its members. At the beginning of this year, 30 per cent, of the members of the union were still illiterate, but the projxirtion is undoubtedly smaller now. Special peasant women's conferences are held in many parts of the Union, where all sorts of discussions take place—from how to feed a baby to relations with Great Britain and conditions in Germany ! There are peasant journals edited and written by peasant women, and many of the peasant women have proved themselves to be excellent organisers. ( 42
