In 1764 by decree of Catherine II in St. Petersburg was founded Russia's first female educational establishment — the Smolny Institute for noble maidens. It began with a revolutionary history of the women's institutes which began to open across the country. Catherine II wanted to give the government "educated women, good mothers, useful family and society", however, graduates of these institutions were called CIT, muslin ladies, made infantile and detached from the world, susceptible and naive. The word "schoolgirl" has become synonymous with exaltation, weaknesses and limitations.
