Gender Asymmetries in Today's Russia
Rimashevskaia, N. M.
Russian Education and Society, v53 n10 p3-22 Oct 2011
There can be no doubt that gender attitudes and the gender stereotypes formed on their basis have a deep-rooted social character. This stems unequivocally from the parallels of development of social processes and gender models. The ideology of gender began to flourish in Russia along with perestroika, an ideology that in the past quarter-century (from 1985 through 2010) has passed from "upsurge" to "decline." Economic and social policy changes in Russia during recent years have brought about unwelcome gender asymmetries that can be reduced only through policies introduced at the national level. In this article, the author aims to look at the current state and dynamics of gender asymmetry in basic spheres of the life and activity of Russian society, politics, the economy (work and its remuneration), social relations, the family, and health--and to evaluate the consequences of the situation that has been established from the point of view of the country's social and economic development. (Contains 24 notes.)
