Yulia Voznesenskaia was part of the Leningrad dissident women's movement that formed in the 1970s. Later, as an emigre in Germany, she wrote the Women's Decameron — the story of ten women quarantined in a Soviet maternity ward for ten days, telling each other tales. * Support SIR: https://www.patreon.com/shesinrussia Shop new Russian fashion: https://www.depop.com/fortochka/
