Based on new Russian archival materials, Women at the Gates is the first social history of Soviet women workers in the 1930s. It is the story of a world remade, from above and from below, as planners “regendered” the entire economy and women entered the ranks of waged labor in unprecedented numbers.
In the annals of Industrialization, the Soviet experience is unique in its whirlwind rapidity. The vast transformations that shook Europe over the centuries - proletarianization, industrialization, urbanization - were telescoped into a mere decade. The working class grew at an unprecedented rate, changing in size and social composition, and in no other country of the world did women constitute such a significant part of the working class in so short a time.
Women at the Gates is the story of a world remade when women entered the waged labor force in unprecedented numbers.
The state’s use of female labor was closely intertwined with the great upheavals of early Soviet history: accumulation of capital for the industrialization drive, the urban food crisis, collectivization, and peasant migration to the cities.
