Equal pay for equal work : A comparison about the attitudes towards women according to the ideology of Mao Zedong and Joseph Stalin (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay is a comparison according to the ideological thoughts about womens position in the society of Mao Zedong och Josef Stalin. The material I have analysed is writings by Mao and Stalin, in a wide range from leaflets to orders to the armies of the states of China and the Soviet Union. The method I have used is an ideological analysis where the attitude towards women is the target for my survey. The attitude towards women generally was not unified in the world during the time for Mao and Stalin. In many countries the women was intended to take care of the children and the home, not be active in working and fighting. That was something for the men. Although, in the socialistic ideology, the attitude towards women were different. They were expected to work, and did this in China and the Sovjet Union. In the same way Mao and Stalin thought. Both of the leaders considered that women should take part of the work for socialism, both before and after the dates when this ideology came to be government in the both countries. Much of the ideology is alike between the two leaders. This is not a surprise when you get to consider that Maos thoughts were based on the same as the one of Stalin, namely these of Vladimir Lenin.
