This chapter discusses the different changes that occurred during the late 19th century until the early 20th century in Russia. These changes gave Russian women writers more opportunities for literary output. However, these changes also took place against an enormous social upheaval. The roles of women in major public political campaigns were notable, and several women writers during this period were staunch feminists. The chapter also looks at the changes linked to the presence of women in the literary scene, and how Russian society viewed these female writers. The discussions presented in this chapter also raised the phenomenon of the diversity of women's writing during this period.

Keywords:   late 19th century, early 20th century, Russian women writers, feminists, diversity, women's writing
