A Marxist-Leninist analysis of the status of women in the world by authors living in Russia’s Soviet Union during 1975, the year declared International Women’s Year by the UN General Assembly. This group explains the role and treatment of women in the USSR, treatment and status of women around the world at the time, the effects of capitalism versus socialism on women, and the formation of the Women’s International Democratic Foundation. “For the first time in history, real equality has been achieved between men and women in the USSR and the countries of the world socialist system.
