We are joined by Anne McShane. Anne is a Human Rights lawyer based in Ireland, who recently completed her PhD on the role of the Zhenotdel, the section of the Russian Communist party devoted to women's affairs in the 1920s, in Soviet Central Asia. We talk about why figures like Alexandra Kollontai and Inessa Armand didn’t consider themselves feminists, and what this implies for our emancipatory politics.
