Summary/Abstract: The following articles focus on a book consisting of twenty two short stories written by Russian woman writers at the beginning of the 21st century. Women are the main heroes telling different stories, whereas men are in the background even though they have to exist in order to love them and have children. Love, friendship, maternity sometimes work are the most important things in women’s lives. There are not many happy heroines in this book: they suffer from loneliness, the lack of children, health and fun… In their opinion love and death are very similar to each other. That is why we look at these women from psychological point of view. Their feelings and emotions seem to be very complicated because life itself is not easy. It turns out that Russian women are almost the same as Polish women in modern times.
