xiii - ~‘ Franki Rallies, Photographs About Women And Work in the Soviet Union,
Pierce Institute, Govan.
Franki Rattles uses Bertolt Brecht’s poem “Questions From A Worker Who Reads’ to provide a literary context to the photographs on show. The last verse (‘Every page a victory/ Who cooked the least lor the victors?/ Every ten years a great man/ Who paid the bill/ So many reports/ 80 many questions’) asks critically who really has the power to control, and in what manner, the labour oi the proletariat. Rattles’ photographs are appropriately situated in the dining area oi the Pierce Institute. They resonate with the social reality oi working-class iolk whose labour power is all they have to ‘get by’ in a class-ridden society dependent on their economic deprivation.
What is the reality oi a woman’s lot in the Soviet Union? Is the sex-role stereotyped division oi labour just as strong as in the West? What choices do the women actually have? These ideas provide a counterpoint to the photographs and the quotes Rattles
ﬁn Sc. "’"Ws‘ﬂ
uses irom the women themselves. From Rostov-on-Don to Kiev and Georgia, women’s work is depicted in a variety oi agricultural and industrial settings. Women are iarmers, plasterers, dockers, dentists and road builders. They produce many commodities: iumiture, ribbons, ties, sausages, textiles, shoes, ceramics. They look stoic, work extremely hard, wear practical clothes and are guaranteed nursery places lortheir children by the State. (‘You have people called housewives, don’t you?’ asks a road builder.) Housing and childcare are social problems which must be satisiied to produce ‘happy’ workers. The exhibition is a uselul visual commentary on socio-politicai conditions. The Western working-class woman who wants to know who irons the shirts, bathes the children, cleans the house, changes the nappies and goes on strike will not ilnd her questions raised. There are still no women in the Politburo. (Lorna J. Waite)
