Becoming Russian Women in Other Regions of St. Petersburg and Moscow

One runs the risk of being accused of sexism or man jingoism when writing about ladies in Russia. International Women’s Day, which was once the third most popular holiday after New Year’s and Victory Day, is now only in fifth place ( with 27 % of Russians saying it is important ).

What is happening in a nation that is so insulated from American influence is difficult to understand. However, it is necessary to explore a wide range of local encounters and ideas on female problems in order to know Russia beyond the conventional storyline about Moscow and St. Petersburg.

This includes acknowledging that Russia’s sex gap is rooted in help from broader cultural norms. For instance, the « banned jobs list » policy, which prohibits 456 professions that are considered to laborious or damaging to women’s reproductive health, still applies today. It was a result of Soviet propaganda and legislation in the 1970s. This government moralism reinforces misogyny and gender stereotypes that may stop.

Another myth about Russian girls is that they are metal miners who just care about money and plastic things. The majority of Russian girls are more concerned with their toddlers than their wealth, and the majority of them think it’s preferable to get married for love rather than just for funds. However, many of them are willing to sacrifice everything to achieve both wealth and economic balance.
