Abstract

The gender patterns of industrial, occupational, and firm-type distribution of employment in Russia 2000-02 are examined using a nationally representative household survey. After a decade of reforms, the degree of gender job segregation remains high. Women gravitate to lower paid industries and occupations, while men concentrate in more highly paid sectors of the economy. The attitudes and stereotypes resulting from the patriarchal social and cultural legacy play an important role in determining the patterns of gender job segregation by influencing both employers’ preferences and workers’ choices.
