Default Brothers for all Sisters

There is a new volunteer movement spreading among Russian youths in many cities, called "Brother for a Sister"


Basically, young men get involved as volunteers. Those of impressive stature and good physical fitness are preferred, especially sportsmen.

Essentially, our society is highly criminalized, including, sadly, a lot of sexual crimes and violence against women.

Not every girl has a brother or boyfriend to escort her home on a dark evening. That is where these guys step in. Girls get their phone number, on social media, or in pamphlets at schools and universities.

She can call, and a lad would meet her outside and take her home


The initiative is already proving very popular, understandably. Began in the city of Voronezh, in the South, and has now spread far and wide around the country. Nice to see. Girls get protection, and boys are taught to be the protectors of our women, rather than criminal thugs and victimizers This will be good for the society, I think.

If the program works, then it is a very good thing.

That being said, the real problem is not that women lack protection, the real problem is that Russia has a serious problem with violence, not to mention a dysfunctional police/court system that allows rapists to get away with it all too easily.

I agree 100%. If you have money here, you can bribe your way out of any conviction... That must change.

That is a potential issue. I hope they screen their members well...
