Collective farm, Moscow, USSR, 1940s. Group of women farmers at the Klishevo collective farm, near Moscow, USSR. These women have replaced the men who are serving as soldiers in the Soviet Army during World War II. Collectivization was Stalin's policy to consolidate labour and land into collective farms, in the hope of increased yield. This photograph is from the Sovfoto photography archive in New York, USA.
