Catherine Breshkovsky (real name Yekaterina Konstatinovna Breshko-Breshkovskaya (Екатерина Константиновна Брешко-Брешковская); 13 January 1844—12 September 1934) was a Russian socialist and revolutionary, better known as Babushka ("Grandmother").
She escaped to Switzerland and the United States in 1900. After returning to Imperial Russia in 1905, she was captured and exiled to Siberia again. After the February Revolution of 1917, political prisoners were released, and Breshkovsky was given a seat in Aleksandr Kerensky's government. When the Bolshevik organized the October Revolution, Breshkovsky was again forced to flee.
She died in Czechoslovakia.
