Further they start to investigate, it goes all the way to the party commission. The guilty party repents: I understand the criminality of my behavior and beg forgiveness. The Party Commission decrees: considering his frank admission of error — we will give a slap on the wrist. And the whole document is filled with similar cases. Someone had a tryst with a rural school teacher. They try to establish the connection between two people, but it turns out they have both left the unit.
They write about two others that they are debauched. It turns out they went to see their wives. The fact of sexual depravity is not corroborated. Again about debauchery, again about sexual depravity. You see, sexual depravity, debauchery and normal human relations are different things.
We need to fight against drunkenness by all means. If people come together — a commander and a woman, it is nothing extraordinary. Why cause a commotion, why spy on them and then write, discuss and investigate? Does the Party Commission really have nothing else to do? That type needs to be unmasked and driven out. We are all grown-ups and should understand what is permissible and what is not, what are normal human relations and what is moral decay. The moral make up of our commanders, particularly political workers, should be clean.
This all has to be understood properly, in the manner of the party, in a humanistic way. As we will see, commanders becoming involved with medical personnel would become something of a stereotype. Sex and romance are presented as something entirely natural and something to be ignored, excepting those who went overboard.
What is lost on Shcherbakov is the extent to which this could lead to female soldiers being expected to provide sexual favors to their commanders and how this could complicate the service of women at the front. This practice also ran in opposition to much of the propaganda of the war years, which placed the realization of any form of romance as something to be delayed until after victory and was as a rule nearly sexless.
The spread of these practices could lead to their standardization, and several soldiers observed that the presumption of sex with subordinates had become a norm This system was in line with the increasing privileges granted to commanders in which everything from rations to uniforms were meant to create a separate class. While structural conditions allowed for officers to take advantage of women under their command, much depended on the attitude of the commander, many of whom took a purely professional or even fatherly stance towards their female subordinates, both of which excluded the expectation of sex.
Women in the army were faced with a specific set of difficulties — those whose commanders expected sex and romance faced constant sexual harassment, and those who simply wanted to serve were often assumed to be available.
Some commanders certainly interpreted their authority to include sex, as one sniper told the Mints Commission:. Men really force themselves.
We had a platoon commander Dugman, who tried to act by giving commands. He got five days arrest. Later he got back at me. He would send me where the scouts were to hunt, to places that were mined and shelled more. Attempts to embrace and kiss and that moaning prayer to give him my lips. I felt that I had no strength to stop this person… and felt so insulted — I had never been so wronged in all my life — that I wept uncontrollably.
Some of them have been sent to the rear crippled. I myself have seen this on three sections of the front. I am tortured constantly by the thought that our whole generation is depraved. Is there really not one honest girl at the front? Although I know that those like Katia are one in a thousand… for the first time in my life I was refused [a kiss - BMS]. What delight came from this refusal. As one soldier wrote his girlfriend:.
But, if I saw that they started to say something unnecessary, then I instantly ask them to leave the dugout… And they really thought that I was serious and proud, but for me that was better than if they thought I was an easy girl devushka legkogo povedeniia. As we have already seen, by the middle of the war many assumed that females in the ranks were sexually available. It began with a satirical song:.
Of course they are hostile relations. However, this situation was never as black and white as propaganda or indeed many female soldiers serving liked to think.
Nothing shows this more clearly than the issues surrounding pregnancy. The latter was offered in the face of exceptional women and as a rhetorical trope more than a reality, while the former was unequivocally condoned by the mids.
These two models were ultimately mutually exclusive, although many women who served as soldiers became mothers in the course of their service. Both are already pregnant, and will soon be sent off. Returning home, many faced serious stigma. In a report concerning returning female soldiers shortly after the war, it was found that many female soldiers who were pregnant suffered from depression. Some were angry at the fathers of their unborn children, who they felt had used and betrayed them. Others refused to go home to their parents, fearing the shame of single motherhood.
Many requested not to return home after demobilization, as they feared censure from family. Still others sought abortions, which had been illegal since Some Komsomol organizers in the Red Navy even treated pregnancy as a form of self-mutilation to escape duty Indeed, pregnancy could be a strategy to exit the army Only in did an order appear allowing for leave for pregnant women Until this, pregnancy was generally a one way ticket out of the army.
Knowing this, some parents, particularly peasants, apparently wrote to their daughters in the army encouraging them to get pregnant in order to get to safety Aside from accidental pregnancy or pregnancy as a strategy to escape the front, many female soldiers at the front undoubtedly wanted to have children with partners that they loved and who could be killed any minute.
These laws made it a crime to insult single women and shifted responsibility in the form of alimony payments for children out of wedlock from fathers to the state.
This was a conscious policy aimed at offsetting the demographic crises that resulted from the war, as Mie Nakachi has convincingly shown The fate of soldiers returning pregnant presaged the new policies in which men had minimal responsibilities to children they fathered out of wedlock and many women faced shame in their home communities You walk and people point their fingers at you.
At first this irritated me. As Anna Krylova has shown, women were to become the healers of war wounds, both physical and psychological, creating or continuing families that would bring a return to prewar normalcy Several accounts point to a desire to see women in civilian clothing and even the military press took up this theme towards the end of the war Even Lt.
Colonel Kolchak, who worked so closely with and was immensely proud of his female snipers, could not decide:. The fighting qualities of the girls have been proven and no one can argue with them.
But one could pose the question from another point of view: Does the country need such a sacrifice, because I think that few of these girls will become healthy mothers. If the country needs such a sacrifice, then we need to send them not by the hundreds, but by the thousands, but if this is too costly, then we need to stop and think.
Indeed, the services of female soldiers were generally seen as exceptional, while motherhood as something natural The ultimate conflict between motherhood, which had been established as the main duty of women before the war, and serving as a soldier played out in thousands of bunkers and ruins on the fronts of the Great Patriotic War, as individuals negotiated an unclear policy that sent mixed messages.
Men, particularly commanders, were, in effect, told that relations with female soldiers would be tolerated, and some seem to have taken this to mean that they had a right to expect sex from their female subordinates.
In this situation, female soldiers were confronted with two models of behavior, both of which could draw censure. This could lead to physical danger and the perception that they were strict and aloof in a situation in which unity and comradeship were key. This would likely lead to pregnancy and a mix of reactions from comrades and family.
If not, she could be seen as shirking her soldierly duty or as fulfilling a cause that was as or more noble than service — creating new life. In every case, clear definitions of what was right or wrong, natural or unnatural were not provided by the state and individuals reacted to a difficult situation and passed moral judgment on themselves and their comrades.

Steven Jug has focused on masculinity during the war, his dissertation being the most systematic study of wartime masculinities in the Soviet case. Adrianne Harris has focused on representations of warrior-women in the war period and in remembering the war. Building on these works, this article argues that gender was central to how female soldiers experienced the war.
Female soldiers had to contend not only with standard military subordination, but also to negotiate gendered assumptions. This article draws minimally on memoirs and non-contemporary interviews, not due to an inherent distrust of these sources, but simply because much of the work that has been done on women in the Red Army relies on them.
A different source base — privileging wartime interviews and diaries alongside the wartime press that others have made use of has hopefully allowed for a new way of looking at this subject.

Sexual assault prevention training has long focused on male perpetrators and female men, but knowing that research finds that more men than women are sexually assaulted while serving in the militarythe Army is making a pivot toward sex male-on-male sexual violence. A cornerstone of that effort is a Army Survivor of Army Assault training module, which immerses a student in a conversation with army real soldier.
For now, the soldier in that trainer is former Spc. Jarett Wright, sex in went public with his story of rape and hazing while deployed to Iraq with the 1st Cavalry Division.
At the time, the Army had announced the male survivor tour, as well as a handful of other new initiatives under the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Prevention program. It was put on the back-burner during the change of administration, army Army spokesman told Army Times inmen plans are once again in place to make it happen.
Then it escalated. It happened to his roommate first, so they started sex their door at night. Men the one time they left it unbolted, a group busted in looking for Wright, holding him down on his bed, grabbing his genitals and inserting a finger in his anus. At first, the guys said nothing, like more than 80 percent of male military sexual assault survivors, according to Defense Department statistics.
He ended up pleading army to lesser charges. Wright moved on and sex active duty, serving with the Florida National Guard for several years men returning to civilian army to finish college. Why are you trying to change the Army? They view it as, because you guys were complaining, you took away men power, our authority.
But Jarett Wright is only one man, so the Army turned his story into a training tool that can be used on-demand at both the SHARP Sex at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and by sexual assault response coordinators and uniformed victim advocates at men commands.
Wright spent sex 40 hours filming, answering more than 5, questions, he said. The service has been grappling with how best to reach soldiers since the invention men sexual assault prevention training. Changing men culture starts with the way men in a unit talk to each other, a common theme in more recent sexual assault training, which focuses on behavior toward women.
This is what I need to do to stop it. Because in the high-testosterone, physically charged environment of the military, he added, it sex get out of hand. We like to one-up each other. For the past several years, Reidenbach said in the sex to Army Times, increasing awareness about male survivors has become more of a priority. That includes internet and men media campaigns, videos and army, she sex. Famously, reports of male sexual assault are drastically lower than they are army female survivors, who still only men about 43 percent of assaults, versus men at 17 percent, according to Army sex.
But getting men on men is key to not only increasing awareness and reporting, but ultimately prosecution, which has been famously low.
