Is it a sin to travel? Itinerant women in post−Soviet narrative

Sarsenov, Karin LU (2006) In Osteuropa: Zeitschrift für Gegenwartsfragen des Ostens p.123-138
Abstract
The cultural construction of the journey as a narrative of masculine identity poses

problems for the conceptualization of the female traveller in general and of the

female Russian migrant in particular. Three contemporary prose pieces dealing with

women's migration reveal subtle and often sophisticated ways of playing with the

stigmatization of Russian women as prostitutes and of destabilizing the patriotic

discourse that outlaws women's movement.
