Russian women about feminism


    I often happen to participate in discussions that Russian women are going to become like American soon. They watch American movies, catch American lifestyle and American values.

    Really, we can feel American influence in Russia today. And the matter doesn’t lie in Hollywood or McDonalds. Women’s independence is becoming trendy. According to the last population census, there are more women with higher education than men now. Some women have several higher educations.

    Nevertheless, Russia has its own way. Our history counts thousands of years, it is too much to change the mentality of the whole nation for a short period. Throughout its history Russia often took a fancy to fashionable western trends. In the 18th century Germany was a favorite, in the 19th century France. It had a certain effect, but didn’t change the Russian character.

    It seems to me that the same will happen to Americanism. Feminism is a bright phenomenon, but life values of a Russian woman have been formed solidly.

    While I was thinking about this subject, the following idea struck me: why not give the floor to the Russian women? I did the searching on feminism in the Russian blogs and found different opinions: supporting feminism, sneering at it and rejecting. It must be interesting!


So, here is what Russian women write about feminism in their web-diaries:


“It seems to me that feminism is not a conviction, but a forced state that is formed due to the peculiarities of character. My granny, her zodiac sign is Leo by the way, behaved like a feminist all her life, the head of the family, can’t stand men, did everything by herself – a man in a skirt.  

She couldn’t find a worthy man, frankly speaking…

It is just such women – strong, good, very touching for me somehow and even at times causing a kind smile on my face – are sometimes unbearable pains in the neck and maximalists”.  


“I am not a feminist, I prefer to have a right for female weaknesses. I have a good attitude to feminists, as everyone chooses her own way. Besides, if it were not them, women would have less rights and more duties now”.


“Feminists are the women which believe that when a husband beats his wife, only 50% of female members in the parliament can change this situation”.


“Feminism infuriates me, I think of feminists in the range from “badly” thru “with compassion” to “with bewilderment”, though I forgive it to some of them”.


“I feel sorry for feminists. IMHO, they are deeply unhappy”.


“For me feminism is ridiculous stupidity, because I am inclined to admit men’s right for leadership and it doesn’t humiliate me at all”.


“Russian women that unite into professional organizations don’t know what feminism is. When they are asked if they are feminists or not, they answer: “Certainly, no, not in the least”. They response in this manner, because they consider that feminism is some swear-word”.


“I think that actually most Russian women are…feminists by life, by fate, because they are forced to struggle for their rights and they struggle and take all sorts of responsibilities upon themselves – they are feminists in this sense, no doubt and I can’t differ from them.”


“The marriage experience of a Soviet woman is characterized by the disappointment in a Soviet type of family. Family life is too heavy burden of twofold or threefold work at her job, home and for providing a family, frequent cases of man’s alcoholism and no help about the house from her husband’s part”.


“There is another sort of women. Gloomy despots. Or feminists, the name is relative. They bear malice for the whole world. For some reason they always consider themselves to be fine romantics, but in fact they turn out to be colder than ice and in relationship they think only about themselves”.


“There is no feminism, I am sure about it! I say it as a specimen of this, so to say, weak sex. NO, because I (I will speak from my person) feel comfortable, I LIKE when a man opens the door for me, when he gives me his seat and massages my feet. I like to ask a strong man to help me with the car or with moving the furniture.

BUT! I won’t die if I don’t have this strong shoulder beside me. Yes, I am taught by the experience put down in the History textbook, that it is possible to do without this necessary shoulder by my side. I can easily open the bottle of beer, change the spark-plugs and wheels of my car.  So to say, I am taught and “shod” in the matter of survival, thanks to this non-existent feminism, which taught me everything that a modern woman can do.”


“I think that feminism is a far-fetched excuse. It took place in the beginning of the last century when women really had great restrictions and no suffrage, but now it is just a convenient excuse of a woman who has complex about her loneliness”.

DECEMBER, 2006
HELLO, MY NAME IS CHRISTOPHER JONES AND AM DIVORCED FROM A RAGING FEMINIST THAT I LOVED AND ADORED DEARLY. CINDY WAS 28 W/ A FIVE YEAR OLD BOY AND I WAS 21 YEARS OLD WHEN WE MET. WE ALSO LIVE IN THE LESBIEN CAPITOL OF THE WORLD, SANTA CRUZ CA. SHE ALREADY HAD THE UPPER HAND FROM THE GET GO.IN THE LATE 1980'S. I WOULD GO TO RALLEYS WITH HER AND SUPPORT WHAT I FELT WAS AN EVOLVING OF HUMAN KIND. SHE KEPT HER LAST NAME, WANTED HER SELF IDENTITY TO CARRY ON AND I TOLD HER I WOULD TO IN HER SHOES. FINE. HOWEVER SHE HAD A BIG CHIP ON HER SHOULDER AND STARTED TO PUT ALL WOMENS HARDSHIPS ON ME--ALMOST LIKE BLAMING ME FOR THE WAY MEN TREATED WOMEN. AFTER A WHILE SHE BECAME COLDER & COLDER UNTILL THE MARRIAGE BECAME STRESSED. EVERYTHING HAD TO BE HER WAY OR THE HIGHWAY. WHEN I WAS BECOMING MORE ADULT LIKE, EMPOWERED WITH LIFE EXPERIANCES, IS WHEN THE STRUGGLE FOR BALANCE OF POWER REALLY TOOK ITS TOLL. SHE HAD ALL THESE CONFUSING CONFLICTIONS AND DOUBLE STANDARDS. ANY IDEA I HAD WAS LOOKED DOWN UPON, WITCH WOULD START A DISAGREEMENT. SO I BECAME MILK TOAST [PUSH-OVER]. THEN CINDY LOST ALL RESPECT FOR ME BECAUSE I JUST LET HER RUN THE SHOW FOR THE SAKE OF THE FAMILY. SO THEN WE ARE OUT WITH SOME FRIENDS AND THIS OLDER LAWER GENTLEMAN I RESPECT, TOOK CHARGE WHEN DRIVING US AROUND IN SAN FRANCISCO, CA. LATER SHE TOLD ME HOW MUCH SHE LIKED HIS TAKE CHARGE PERSONALITY. WHAT THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THAT. SEE WHAT I MEAN? SHE IS REALLY CONFUSED. THIS WAS A CONSTANT PROBLEM. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO. ALL SHE HAD TO REALIZE IS THAT I LOVED HER AND BALANCE WAS FINE BUT SHE WAS ON A MISSION. IT ULTIMATLEY DESTROYED OUR MARRIAGE. SO I SEE A LOT OF VALUE IN FORIGEN WAY OF THINKING. ESPECIALLY RUSSIAN WOMEN, THEY DON'T HAVE A CHIP ON THEIR SHOULDERS, AND WOULD APPRICIATE SOME SHIVALRY, KINDNESS, RESPECT, AND EQUALITY. I DON'T EVER WANT TO DICTATE WHAT ANOTHER ADULT CAN'T DO. THANKS FOR READING I FEEL LIBERATED NOW.
I AM 43 YEARS OLD AND LOVE TO RIDE MY HARLEY DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE. MAY PEACE AND TRAQUILITY BE YOURS.
CHRISTOPER MARK JONES

P.S. MAYBE I WILL FIND A LOVELY RUSSIAN WOMAN TO ENJOY LIFE WITH SOMEDAY.
Author's answer: Dear Christopher Jones,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I am really sad to hear your bad experience. Frankly speaking Russian and Ukrainian women differ much from American. They are not only beautiful and charming but still keep strong family values. They have always been famous as good wives and mothers. To my mind our women are quite opposite to what you described.
Most men look for Russian bride as only Russian and Ukrainian women have the unique soul you cannot find some where else They respects their husbands and put the family above everything else. We are
brought up here in such a manner that family is the most important; we like to cook and take care of the one we love. Besides ladies look after themselves and try always to be in a good shape.
To my mind if you are serious about creating a family and finding a good wife you can try to talk to Russian or Ukrainian girls. Please don’t give up I am sure you will find the lady of your dream!

Best regards, Ira
