Combining Family and Building a Successful Career for a Russian Woman Today: Myth or Reality?

Miroshnichenko Olga, Evgenia E. Frolova, Tatiana Samusenko


The author analyses the difficulties a woman in modern Russia faces when she tries to combine family and building a successful career making. The author comes to the conclusion that the full-fledged combination of a career and family responsibilities for women in Russia is quite possible today. This fact is evidenced by the experience of many Western countries. However, it requires serious changes in the mass consciousness and a fundamentally different state policy in the field of family and childhood. Society should not chase a woman into a corner with stereotypes about her natural mission.
