ABSTRACT
The paper deals with gender equality issues in Russia. The paper proves that there is total ignorance of gender issues at the top of society, but there are positive trends in gender policy development in Russia. The aim of the paper is an analysis of the situation in Russia in terms of gender inequalities in politics and economics and to present the main challenges of addressing gender issues in the governmental policies of the Russian Federation. The paper gives examples of horizontal segregation ("glass ceiling") which characterizes differences between male and female occupations and wage discrimination as well. The paper reveals also women's discrimination is women's inequality in family relationships and worse individual health of women in Russia. Multiplicative effect of gender asymmetry causes poverty among women. The elimination of poverty can be successfully realized only through the gender policy development and introduction of ministerial bodies dealing with these issues.
