80k People Live In This Closed City Which Was Kept Secret For 49 Years And Is The Most Contaminated Place On Earth

Apart from the Chernobyl disaster, we rarely hear about nuclear accidents in the former USSR. However, there were plenty of them but they were all kept a secret from the general public. One particular installation – City-40 – was the first Soviet plutonium production complex and the site of three massive nuclear incidents. Up until the ’90s, City-40 was not placed on the map, there were no road signs to lead one there, and its inhabitants officially did not exist. However, despite the complete isolation, to this day its residents are not keen on leaving the closed-off haven – the majority are not even considering the possibility.

Women are often sidelined when it comes to laws that affect them directly, and this is a perfect example. That’s why it is so important that women’s voices and experiences are heard if we are to expect change in …
