Implementation of the Women of Russia: Place and Part in Social and Economic Development research project.


Decisions made in the interests of women should be based on quality analytics: a review of best Russian and international practices, sociological surveys of the population and entrepreneurs, and systematic monitoring of the media environment. An integrated research approach will make it possible to monitor changes in society in relation to women's role and their participation in the country's socio-economic development.


  1. Draw the attention of the State, businesses, professional associations and non-profit institutions to the topic of supporting women's projects in various areas - social, cultural, financial, economic, scientific and others. 
  2. Increase public awareness of the role of women in the socio-economic development of the country.
  3. Participate in international research projects, including the use of internationally accepted indicators, to further compare and assess the degree of women's participation in the country's economy.
