Women in Business in Russia

The communist system of Russia preached equality of the sexes but had far less success in achieving the objective than their counterparts in the Peoples Republic of China.

Thus, although a high percentage of the Russian workforce is female, there are very, very few women in senior management positions. This situation shows little sign of changing other than in some of the offices of major MNCs stationed in the country.

Western women working in Russia will be showered with old-fashioned courtesies but may find themselves being less respected in meetings and treated as inferior in rank to male colleagues – whether they are or not!
