From Library Journal:

In the first half of this scholarly study, Attwood (Soviet studies, Manchester Univ.) analyzes Soviet history and the Soviet cinema, emphasizing the role of women both as film characters and as workers in the industry. She points out that from the beginnings of the Soviet regime to its collapse, the Communists recognized film as an effective agent for social change. In the second half of her book, Attwood collects essays by several Soviet women film critics and interviews with some of the few women directors, writers, and camerawomen. All the contributors stress the conflict they have felt between their careers and their families, since they were both forced into the workplace and pressured to have children. This double burden has made Soviet women generally cynical about the idea of equality with men. For academic libraries with film or women's studies collections.
