Russia: “Nashi” and Feminism

Natalia Antonova writes about Nashi pro-Putin youth movement – and about feminism in the former Soviet Union: “So is there feminism in Russia today? Yes. Only in many instances, it doesn’t go by that name. And perhaps never will. Is there feminism among Nashi members? I don’t believe the members of Nashi would define themselves thus. ‘Feminism’ is a politically loaded term, and the politics associated with it are the opposite of what Nashi members subscribe to.”
