The 1960s were remembered in the world history of a high degree of liberalization: the Sexual revolution, the Great French revolution, feminist, anti-war movements, etc. the Soviet Union, so it happened, followed these trends – the period was called the "Khrushchev thaw". At this time, despite the still existing concept of the "iron curtain", foreign culture penetrated the expanses of the Soviet Union. In this work, to confirm the hypothesis that the films of Jean-Luc Godard influenced to some extent the formation of the image of the Soviet woman, we first analyzed the image of a woman presented in the films of Godard, then select the images on the basis of the Soviet magazine "Rabotnitsa" and compare them, to confirm the conclusions also conducted an in-depth interview with a witness of the era.
