Nina Bluket (1902 - 1978) is known for being a key player in the rise of the Russian chess movement, and her memior recounts embarring men at tournaments in the 1920s. She played in coed national tournaments in the 1930s, and she was a member of the all-union chess leadership committee in the 1940s.
