Bytovukha: Family Violence in Soviet Russia

Bytovukha: Family Violence in Soviet Russia Bytovukha Family Violence in Soviet Russia Marianna Muravyeva ABSTRACT The article gives a systematic assessment of legal a itudes toward family and domestic violence in Soviet Russia to examine whether the incidence of family violence remained as high as it was in the pre-revolutionary period, whether forms of family violence changed due to the new regime and new legal categories, and whether and how the new gender regime (i.e., the proclaimed equality of women and men) infl uenced the state of family violence in Soviet Russia. The analysis reveals that the Soviet state used the concepts of “hooliganism” and “family-domestic crimes” as the legal frameworks to deal with family violence while the concept of the “problem family” was employed to suggest prevention policies against domestic violence. The article also addresses the problem of continuity in social and criminal policies of Russia within the current ap- plication of “traditional values” and explains why this concept is consistent with the Soviet past.
