Еlena Zdravomyslova – Anna Temkina, “Women’s Studies and Gender Studies in the West and in Russia”, pp. 13-22 [Abstract]
In this essay the authors compare factors of development of Gender Studies and Women’s Studies in the West and in Russia. From a sociological point of view they analyze the importance of western theories in Russian researches about gender. Institutionalization of Gender and Women’s Studies in the western world arises at the beginning of Seventies to comprehend the feminist movement. It is possible to distinguish three ways to study feminism and all have different conclusions: liberal feminism – sex role theory, radical feminism – Women’s Studies, and constructivism – Gender Studies in a broad sense. Rising Russian debate about the notion of gender has nothing to do with the western one: the trend called “Women’s Studies” actually appears as “feminologija”, which is the study of women’s condition and status in society. On the other hand the trend called “Gender Studies” takes a position more extreme and radical in comparison with “feminologija”; as a consequence Gender Studies in Russia are strictly linked with the feminist movement. According to western classification, the authors consider the position of constructivism the most suited to give a methodology for researches, but also a theory open to the changes of society and gender relations.
