The Russians expressed appreciation to the women earning more than their husbands (70 percent). This is the conclusion reached by researchers of the Agency “Mikhailov and Partners. Analysis” (results “”).

According to the survey, against high-earning women in favor, 32 percent of the men surveyed. But despite this, 65 percent of Russians still supported the women’s part of the wages.

In General, the Russians almost unanimously support the basic principles of equality in society: women’s right to higher education (99 percent), suffrage (97 percent), ownership (94 percent). 73 percent of respondents expressed the opinion about the necessity of gender equality in relationships, but 24% said that in Russia there are still Patriarchal attitudes.

Nationwide representative telephone survey was conducted in March 2019. The sample consisted of 1792 people.

Earlier it was estimated the extent of gender inequality in Russia. So, according to a study by the world Bank “Women, business and the law — 2019”, the Russian women have only three-quarters of those rights that there is in men. The situation is similar, for example, in the developing countries of Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.
