Ever more lady bosses for Russia

Ever more women are getting to the corporate top. The fair sex now makes a third of company managers, said Galina Karelova, Russia's Deputy Prime Minister, as she was addressing Chinese women organisations' activists on the government premises.

Women are no less active in the federal executive-suffice it to mention deputy ministers of Foreign Affairs, Defence and Transport, or Valentina Matvienko, with her landslide victory at a recent mayoral election in St. Petersburg.

The Russian public is growing to realise how much women can do for politics and in community affairs. Russians are moderate in this respect. Feminist extremism is alien to an overwhelming majority, which thinks the two sexes' equal rights and involvement in all spheres of life is just how things should be.

We can only regret that women are still scanty in legislatures. An election to the State Duma, the federal parliament's lower house, is approaching. Why, women make a mere 15 or even 10 percent on party tickets offered for the poll, Galina Karelova sighed.
