Summary/Abstract: This article looks at Russian women’s mobilization, social and political agency during the great period of transformation, the turn of the XIX—XX cc. and especially in 1917 as is shown in Russian Soviet and Post-Soviet historiography. Bringing together the main publications about pre-revolutionary processes 1900—1917, the authors are trying to answer the question, how the women’s participation in the revolutionary events of 1917 is understood and discussed after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in today’s Russia, how it is represented by different voices in the contemporary public and academic debates on gender relations and possibilities women have in society.
