To Soviet Women, TASS No. 1362, February 9, 1946

In days of war, in all the factories,
You supported husband, brother, father.
Was it not you who sewed a protective overcoat
And leather jackboots for the fighter?
In ditches, in thousands of snow drifts,
The heroic fighter marched along.
But now you sew a different kind of footwear:
It is a different time; a different style has come.
The battle is over, and it is crowned with victory;
And in the quiet of these postwar days
There work the ranks of Soviet women
For the resurrection of their homeland.
