Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the questions from the viewpoint of gender theory using the case-study of Russian women. The Russo-Japanese War as an event which influenced the process of the development of Russian society may give some clues for understanding the subsequent fate of Russian and Soviet women. The chapter finds out what changes, if any, this war brought to the position, perception, and representation of women in Russia. By the time the Russo-Japanese War started Russian women already had some professional experience which was well known in society. The nurse Lyudmila Vladimirovna Yakovenko-Yakovleva became particularly famous during the war because she was wounded in both legs and one had to be amputated. The most remarkable and well-known figure among Port Arthur's women was Vera Alekseevna Stoessel, the wife of the General and Commander of the Fortress.

Keywords: Lyudmila Vladimirovna Yakovenko-Yakovleva; Port Arthur; Russian women; Russo-Japanese War; Vera Alekseevna Stoessel
