The Woman Worker is one of the oldest Russian magazines exclusively devoted to women and families. The magazine's basic theme is to advocate proletarian internationalism and international labour solidarity as a means to checkmate imperialism. Its advocacy is for "social justice, the emancipation of women, and worldwide peace." The magazine meant to make women workers aware of the political situation in the country and acted as a catalyst in the participation of women in the socialist revolution in Russia. The magazine paved the way for the women workers to "participate in state and public life and the building of communism". It was instrumental in awakening the women workers to the political reality of the times and brought them under the party's banner. It also helped in propagating the Leninist ideology of the socialist revolution. The front cover photo was done by G Petrusov. Georgy Petrusov was a Soviet photographer. His photographs were exhibited at the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow in 2010-2011. Petrusov worked alongside the period’s most prolific avant-garde photographers, many of whom he would photograph throughout his career. Petrusov’s photographs are particularly striking for their well-organized space and deep perspective. This issue's artwork includes illustrations by M Hrapkovsky for the story "In the Sea". Published by the publishing house "Pravda". Good condition. Pen handwriting on the front cover. Dust staining, rubbings. 18 pages.
