Russia’s Female Revolutionaries

It is probably a legacy of my love for weighty Russian novels, but in my estimation there is a very interesting moment in history right now:

Closing Statements, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, Yekaterina Samutsevich

They are the latest in a legacy of strong Russian women who take charge in hopes of creating a better life, much like the Five Sisters Under the Tsar. The new group of women is not nearly as radical, and it is an intriguing premise to consider that the women today may actually be less free than the five sisters in the 1870’s.

Note: I have purposely avoided including the band’s name here to make this post safe for filters.

  1. That sounds like a book I’d be interested in, since I’ve been a Russophile for almost 20 years and write superlong Russian historical fiction.
