Description

The role of women in the Russian Revolution is often overlooked, though had had a long history at the front-lines of radical politics. Women took to the streets in February 1917, inciting their male counterparts to march with them. These marches, known as the February Revolution, would pave the way to the eventual overthrowing of Tsar Nicholas II and bring the Bolsheviks to power.

Under the Bolsheviks, women experienced some of the most progressive policies the world had seen at that time, however they would be rolled back within a matter of years.
