By *Kathy Fairfax*

The popular image of the Russian Revolution is of a revolution made by 
men. Ask the person in the street to name a figure from the Russian 
Revolution and most could come up with Lenin, Stalin, maybe Trotsky. A 
few might have heard of Zinoviev, Kamenev or Bukharin. But how many 
would name Kollontai, Armand or Krupskaya? How many know of the women 
who helped make revolution in Russia? How many know about the thousands 
of female Bolsheviks who marched through the streets of Petrograd in 
1917 or shouted revolutionary speeches to cheering crowds or wrote and 
distributed pamphlets calling for revolution? In fact, women 
revolutionaries inspired the working class the world over and 
inaugurated a new era in world history.
