The main aim of the program “Russian Woman – Russian Power“ is to highlight the role of Russian women in Russia’s socio-political, cultural and economic spheres. From imperial Russia to Soviet times and to the present day, we will focus on the role of Russian women in shaping their lives and the lives of others in various aspects of Russian reality. Also, the participants will be offered a deep immersion in the realms of the Russian language.
Thus, the school participants will consider Russian women, representing the female political history of Russia, starting from the 10th century, when the country was ruled by Princess Olga, the first Russian woman-political leader; and one of the most powerful female political leaders Empress Catherine the Great, daughter of the German duke, under whose rule Russia flourished and became one of the great powers of Europe. Also, participants will be presented with a view on the Russian woman in the Soviet times, when She was given equal rights with men in all spheres of economic, state, cultural, social and political life. Finally, participants will see the role and place of women in contemporary Russia, as well as learn about feminist activism in Russia today.
In addition, the School participants will have a unique opportunity to meet Russian women who have achieved great success in sport, ballet, art, space, and archeology. Thus, Anna Negasheva, two-time world champion in synchronized skating, will be one of the special guests of the Online Summer School.
