The essay surveys the major trends in the history of Russia's women from the 18th to the late twentieth century-beginning with Peter the Great's thoroughgoing transformation of the lives of elite women, and concluding with the anti-feminist backlash of the post-Soviet era- explores the impact of government efforts on women to manipulate gender relations and hierarchies as a means to other ends on women; and examines the ways that the state's opponents incorporated gender into their own strategies of resistance.
