Nailya Alexander Gallery is pleased to present The Image of a Woman in Soviet Russia: ss, an online exhibition that provides a window into the role of women in the newly-formed Soviet society. The Bolshevik Revolution led to widespread calls for equality between the sexes and for women to participate in political, economic, and social life with the same status and opportunities as men. The hopefulness of the s is palpable in two prints by Alexander Grinberg, which show a dancer and an actress in moments of joy, in full command of their abilities. Meanwhile, the vigor and bravery of the new Soviet woman is portrayed in photographs of Pasha Angelina, internationally famous in her lifetime as the first female tractor driver in the USSR and seated next to Joseph Stalin at a Congress of the Young Communist League in the Kremlin; the young female pilots who defended Moscow and Leningrad during the war, one of whom, Valentina Grizodubova, set seven world records and went on to serve as the only female member of the national panel to investigate Nazi war crimes in the USSR; and Muza Malinovskaya, one of the first female parachuters in the Soviet Union, who set a world record in by jumping from a height of more than 7, meters. Other images of women show their subjects generalized as model of an ideal woman or as aspirational icons — a young woman lounging in an inner tube on the Black Sea, photographed by filmmaker Roman Karmen in the late s; a Mongolian fisher-woman smoking a pipe; a smiling young girl selling cigarettes, photographed for the pages of the news journal Krasnaya Niva [Red Field]. The Image of a Woman shows the power of this vision, which captivated male photographers, and, indeed, the whole of Soviet Russia in the mid-twentieth century.

The first Komsomol members made leather jackets fashionable, and the NEP era and avant-garde art ushered in stylish hats and dresses. At the height of Stalinism, when collectivization and industrialization were sweeping the USSR, women were expected, above all, to be useful members of society. You won't see many fashionistas in old photos of this time — they were condemned as carriers of harmful capitalist values. World War II recalibrated the way that Russian women looked and dressed. Many dressed in military uniform.
