Адам & Ева. Альманах гендерной истории
Almanac "Adam and Eve" - first periodical specially devoted to the problems of gender history, which is part of the interdisciplinary area of social and humanities.

Russian journals demonstrated problems, shaped aims and goals, and showed forms and methods of campaigning in support of women's rights in Russia, using the examples from other countries, especially from Europe and the USA. In 1860-1910 in Russia there appeared more than 350 publications on this topic. Among them were serious research materials, translations, articles, pamphlets, documents from conferences and meetings, and statistical data. A great deal of articles, which analyzed the status of women in the West, described the situation in the USA as the most favourable to them and showed that the women's movement there had achieved the best results. Therefore a number of authors thought the rights of American women to be an aim for Russia. Forms and methods of campaigning were depicted in minute details, so the articles could be seen as 'instructions' for women of Russia.
