Happy Literacy Day!

vivianvivisection:

In 1897, the literacy rate in Tsarist Russia was 24% in general, mostly in urban areas.

By 1939, this was raised to 89.7% due to the efforts of the Soviet’s Likbez campaign.

By the 1950’s the USSR had achieved full literacy.

"There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”."
