Formed barely six months before the Bolshevik revolution in November 1917, Maria Bochkareva, a Siberian peasant, petitioned Prime Minister Aleksander Kerensky for the right to form an all-female battalion serve in the Russian army during World War I. Despite initial successes, within four months the battalion had dwindled from 2000 members to 250. The Bolshevik Military Revolutionary Committee disbanded the group on November 21, 1917.
