This 35-minute DVD portrays how Russians and Americans collaborated in reviving women’s activism in the USSR and post-Soviet Russia and in creating Russian women’s studies on both sides of the ocean.  The film is based on interviews with 18 experts who were engaged in this project. Participants assess the project’s successes and failures since the days of glasnost and discuss the stiff challenges that Russian feminists face in the Putin-Medvedev era.
