In brass and "hot baked" enamels, 15.1 mm x 26.8 mm. In excellent condition.

Known by its French acronym FDIF (Fédération démocratique internationale des femmes), the International Democratic Federation of Women was formed in 1945 in the wake of WW2. Like most other international organizations with the "democratic" as part of the name, it was communist- controlled and essentially a front for Soviet propaganda. The exact meaning of the Roman numeral "V" that appears on the badge is unknown, but the badge may have been issued in commemoration of the 5th anniversary of the federation in 1950, 5th anniversary of Mongolia's joining the organization, or possibly for being a member of its Mongolian chapter for five years. /See A. Battushig, Mongolian Orders, Medals & Badges page 154, fig. W 54 (note that the badge was erroneously placed in the Sports section of the catalog)/.
