Talking about the society of a country as large as Russia and homogenizing it can be a big mistake. Until a few years ago, the Russians were categorized as a very rigid society although with great family value. However, despite the cold, the Russians provide warmth to anyone who likes to visit this beautiful country. It is a country that has people who have a well-defined role within their society, be they men or women and this is a characteristic that defines them very well.
Let's see the most common roles played by women and men in this society.
In Russia there is a great disparity between the number of women and men, placing women at a clear disadvantage when it comes to consolidating a home. According to data from the last official census, at least 53% of its inhabitants are men, while only 46% are women. These figures have allowed women to be seen in the background for a long time. Currently things are changing for them and it has been given more participation with the promotion of laws specially dedicated for their inclusion in society with gender equality.
Femininity is breathed through the streets, Russian women are flirtatiousThey love to be well groomed.
They take good care of their figure and are lovers of their skin care. Despite the cold, women walk in mini skirts and high heels walking through the park, so they love to show off their figure.
Russian men are hard workers, kind and with a lot of perspective when it comes to choosing their partner. It is true that in Russia there are more than 200 ethnic groups so the prototypes created by the TV of that big, tall, blue-eyed Russian, is almost unreal. Actually there is everything, mestizos with Asian features, white with black and brown hair, there is a wide repertoire to see.
They generally like to be in shape and train in the gym, they care about their physical appearance, short hair and little beard. The Russians smile little, they are very reserved. They say that the laughter of the Russians is an expression linked to the suffering for which they have passed.
But it is also said that once the ice is broken with them, you can get to know a more cheerful, amusing Russian with excellent host qualities.
In relation to the roles he fulfills in the home, he is not given to domestic tasks, such as cooking and cleaning. This nuance is accompanied by a clear macho trend, however it is not as marked in comparison to other European countries.
Gender equality is something very new for Russian society, and efforts are being made to materialize recognizing the woman in various social roles reserved so far only for men. The results are positive and gender violence has been reduced in certain strata of the population.
Men and women make up the traditional Russian family where women are engaged in their daily domestic activities and men to seek sustenance. The children of the families are reared in values and fundamental principles in cooperation and family solidarity, in addition to their educational and recreational activities.
