Russian Women Satisfy Ambitions for Power at Home

'Russian women don't go into politics because they completely fulfil their ambitions for power at home in their families,' said St. Petersburg State University Professor Zinaida Sikevich at a round table entitled 'Women's Face of St. Petersburg' at Rosbalt on Monday. She said that 'if a woman is successful at home and at work, the social roles which she fulfils intersect.' As a result, 'women struggle with a psychological conflict, which increases their level of anxiety,' said Sikevich. In this situation, women always give their preference to their family, she said.

Director of the Leontievsky Center Irina Karelina agreed with Sikevich and said that Russian men 'are not prepared and do not want to be the head of the family and take on themselves added responsibility.'

Popular St. Petersburg sociologist Roman Mogilevsky said that according to social research, conducted by the Agency for Social Information, love is the main value in life for women who consider themselves happy. For women who consider themselves unhappy, the main value is material things.
