Gender Imbalance and Toxic Masculinity in Wartime Russia – Samantha Berkhead

Samantha Berkhead is the senior editor for The Moscow Times. She joined The Moscow Times in 2019 and lived in Russia from that year until the invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. At MT, she has reported on everything from Russian women's issues to the Russian Orthodox Church to the resurgent popularity of esoterics.

This lecture at the Amherst College is part of a series of lectures organized by The Moscow Times at top world universities and given by media professionals and experts on Russia.

… 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.
