Under the Bolsheviks, divorce and abortion laws were liberalised, homosexuality was decriminalised, cohabitation between men and women was permitted, marital rape was made illegal and abortion was legalised. For them, women no longer merely fulfilled the role of the silent, fertile and obedient housewife.
