This work is an attempt to take a fresh look at the role of women in Russian village in the chosen period. This paper will examine the status of a Russian peasant woman in family and explore the types of evolution of domestic relations among peasantry of Russia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Fundamentally, Russian peasant families in comparison with families of other estates were keepers of ancient traditions with patriarchal attitudes, hierarchy of generation and close contacts with relatives. The question about about the perception of status and role of women in Russian village is very essential not only by itself but also for developing a general idea of the domestic and social, political and cultural history of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Creation of a holistic picture of a woman’s role in the family provides an opportunity to gain an insight into the history of the family, social, legal and family life of Russian society and their transformation in the new historical conditions.
