The sessions of The Sunday University took place of March 15. However henceforth the project will be called The Sunday Club as organizers finally changed the traditional format of lecture to the interactive dialogue and discussion. The subject of the March meeting was a woman as participant revolutions and wars; on the front and in the rear, in underground movements, in the past and present.

The issue of gender equality is currently being studied in almost all fields of science. But the interest to this subject suggests that the problem of gender discrimination unfortunately still exists. Even a tradition of celebrating March 8, the Day for womens right to equality, which became a regular reminder of the place of women in society, proves this. The greetings are addressed not to equal members of society but to gentle wives and loving mother, thus emphasizing that women belong to the weaker sex, fixing and imposing the public opinion on the mission of women.

Starting the session, Dr. Igor Shchupak turned to ancient history and reminded about the matriarchal structure of primitive communities and explained the reasons for its change to patriarchy. Then the woman question was considered on specific examples: Joan of Arc, the Soviet underground worker Tetyana Marcus, UPA underground worker Maria Savchyn, Red Army sniper Lyudmyla Pavlyuchenko, pilot Nadia Savchenko. The discussion was built around short reports on these women presented by Tkuma Institute research associates Vladyslav Bazylevsky, Dilfuza Hlushchenko, Lyudmyla Sandul and the listener The Sunday Club Georgiy Stolyarenko.

The discussion went far beyond the topics raised and touched on moral and human values. Can the heroism be considered as the resistance to invaders? What provokes the enemy to punitive actions against the civilian population? Can we say that representatives of underground movements are heroes? What really can be considered a feat and can this notion be an objective one?

The next sessions will be held on April 19. Theme is Military secret and military truth: the 70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany.
