Ukraine women's battalion mans barricades

Pro-Russia brigades of female fighters have erected checkpoints and seized much of eastern Luhansk region.

Quote:
Dustova feels that she is serving the greater cause of a vaguely defined Lugansk People's Republic. 

Quote:
Dustova said, "I don't see any leaders amongst our politicians, male or female. We just have oligarch after oligarch. We're just regular miners that know the price of labour and know that we can't live on the money we get paid. This is now a miner's republic.

Quote:
Unlike nearly all of the fighters seen around the Donbas, the women here were not wearing masks, and they were far more forthright about their opinions and motivations – and they seemed to have more on the line. "What, should I allow them to shoot at me in my town? No. I will stand here so that they won't be allowed to pass.

The women are not pro-Russia they are anti-oligarch. 

The liberation of mankind rests on the liberation of womankind.
