The Moscow Times Launches 'Mothers & Daughters'


The Moscow Times has launched a special project dedicated entirely to women in Russia.

"Mothers and Daughters" tells the stories of women of different ages throughout the country.

In recent years, conservative values have become more deeply entrenched in Russian society and in 2017 lawmakers passed a bill to decriminalize domestic violence. 

Gradually, however, women are raising their voices. In 2018, more women put themselves forward in presidential elections than ever before. And although the #MeToo movement has yet to take off in Russia, several female journalists pressured a lawmaker into apologizing after accusing him of sexual harassment. Beyond the news cycle, however, women are rarely given a platform. 

In "Mothers and Daughters," three generations of women from five families talk work, marriage, love, sex and everything in between.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
