In Soviet Union women participating in WWII were erased from history, remaining as the occasional anecdote of a female sniper or simply as medical staff or, at best, radio specialists. The word “front-line girl” (frontovichka) became a terrible insult, synonimous to “whore”. Hundreds thousand of girls who went to war to protect their homeland with their very lives, who came back injured or disabled, with medals for valor, had to hide it to protect themselves from public scorn.

While in the US, women were working at factories while men were fighting in WWII, Russian women fought with their male counterparts as equal soldiers. Both had their roles to play, and show that war affects entire societies, not just the soldiers.
