Two days after the war has started, Russian feminists created a horizontal organization that has been in the forefront of anti-war protest for over 4 months now. Thousands of activists in 112 cities across the country engage in underground forms of resistance, organize help for the refugees and save those who face political repressions. 

How women became the true face of the anti-war movement in Russia? We’ll try to figure it out with Daria Serenko, Russian feminist poet and activist.
