Audio: Alexandra Kollontai in the New World | Earshot with Miyuki Jokirant (2017)

Earshot with Miyuki Jokirant | Australian Broadcasting Corporation

With these nameless women, was Alexandra Kollontai, a socialist, a Bolshevik, and passionate advocate of working women’s rights. She was a fighter, but also a lover, a woman who wrote prolifically about working women’s rights, sexuality and eschewed bourgeois feminism. We look at her life and history, and imagine what she would have said about life for women today.
