Process of gathering information for data base on women’s movement of Russia started in 1990 before the 1st Independent Women’s Forum. In the beginning it was just a card-index. Founders of data base were the Moscow Center for Gender Studies (Anastasia Posadskaya, Valentina Konstantinova, Zoya Khotkina, Tatiana Dorokhina); SAFO (Natalia Filippova, Natalia Abubikirova, Marina Regentova, Natalia Lebedeva, Valeria Tukmanova, Olga Lipovskaya, Tatiana Poddubnaya, Elena Morozova); employees of the Institute of Philisophy of Academy of Sciences (Olga Voronina, Tatiana Klimenkova). By the time of the 2nd Women’s Forum (December 1992) Elena Kochkina, Elena Maslova and Lidiya S. Scobtsova joined the team. Data base was transferred to Tatiana Troinova’s computer. Later, in 1993-1995 Women’s Informational Project (Archive, Data Base, Library – ADL) was in charge of data base. The project was sponsored by the government of Germany through Frauenanstiftung Foundation. Programmers Lidiya Yourovskaya and Tatiana Evstifeyeva led by Tatiana Troinova devoted their brains and hearts to the program product called ZHISET+ (ЖИСЕТ+). (full text).
