Abstract/Description: This thesis deals with the opinions and views regarding women's rights and equality by the Bolshevik Party in Russia during the period of 1917 to 1920. This study examines the Bolshevik party's rhetoric involving gender issues, primarily that of women, and the proposed methods of creating a better environment for women. This work relies heavily on Vladimir Lenin and Alexandra Kollontai's speeches and writings which express their views on women's equality and the rights of women. It also relies on the writing of Louise Bryant, a woman from the United States who was present during the Bolshevik revolution for the initial six months, as she expresses her own opinions on the work of the Bolshevik party regarding women's rights. This thesis addresses the initial steps made by the Bolshevik party towards liberating women and creating gender equality during 1917-1920, but primarily deals with the ideas expressed regarding the issue.
