The music part says: Notes for everyone (or for all)
The title of the song is: do you remember that night? so a love song?

Under the title WOMAN, a subtitle reads: Mother - Citizen - Wife - Homekeeper.
There's no table of contents. A notice says that the subscribers will receive, attached to this issue, the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Beecher-Stowe and "Gulliver's Travels" by Swift.
The main story is "The Teacher (a legend)", apparently by Esther Goldstein who is portrayed with her son. I've never heard of such writer, and the legend seems to me dull, pretentious and over-sentimental.

"over sentimental" is the perfect adjective to describe the stoies i was referring to in my latest posts! Thanks!

How serious is serious? I'm thinking of articles on education and the like - the political situation was probably a bit too controversial for Russia in 1914!

How wonderful is this thread!  I have just purchased a research book on women of Russia of this period from a second hand store (out of whim and interest, then I saw this topic).  I will post what I learn.

Here is a quotation from the preface:
"Russian women began their struggle for higher education during that turbulent period of reform following the Crimean War of 1853-6... by the late 1870's, they had greater access to physicians' training and university-level courses than women anywhere else in Europe."

"The majority of female activists in nineteenth-century Russia, however, did not join the revolutionary underground.  Those women who co-operated with the government in order to increase their educational opportunities far outnumbered the female revolutionists who sought to overthrow it."

Women's Struggle for Higher Education in Russia.  1855-1900
  by Christine Johanson 1987.  This author really did some in-depth research and am excited to read, learn and share!
There are photos in the book that I will scan and post soon.
It is said that history is written by the winners, but over time history can also include the whole truth.

This is absolutely fascinating. Where did you get this magazine? Any idea where to find more or how to track them down?
It would be fun to play the song on the piano :)
