Abstract

Fictional works published in the Western Ukrainian magazine for rural women "Women's Will" (1932–1939) are analyzed in the paper. The authors of these publications were amateur writers, mostly peasant women, who focused on the tastes and requests of their target audience. According to many criteria, these works can be attributed to mass literature, as they are characterized by a stenciled and unpretentious plot, folklore plot, excessive didacticism. However, unlike many other works for the common people, the editorial board set itself the task of involving peasant women in the women's movement, in particular campaigning for membership in the “Union of Ukrainian Women”, so the feminist component was important in these works. Despite the fact that there were many gender stereotypes in the works, the folk authors consistently constructed the image of a new peasant, educated, able to effectively manage the economy and participate in the cooperative movement, a conscious Ukrainian who is not indifferent to public affairs. Work for the benefit of the Motherland and Ukrainian women are the ideological dominants of the works of amateur writers.
