The article analyses the problem of gender equality in Russian society. Starting from a question of whether Russian gender equality has progressed or regressed since the revolution, which was supposed to complete women`s liberation. But Russian sexual discrimination is increasing, Russian gender equality seems to be regressing in the post-soviet society. The purpose of this article is to analyse women`s citizenship in the modern Russian society. And this article is to study the gender regime and women`s struggle for equal rights in economy, politics and society. Nowadays in Russia it is not easy for women to keep their jobs after maternity leave. Some mothers were fired from their jobs and some were made redundant. Young women said they were worried they would lose their jobs after giving birth. Moreover men`s wages are 30% higher than women`s wages. The government says it wants to protect women`s rights and to keep a post-soviet model of a gender contract for working mother, but instead they keep a gender neutral policy, based on developmental neoliberalism and neotraditionalism. It is necessary to develop the balance of work and family life for gender equality. Gender policy principles apply to the reform of gender egalitarianism in parenthood and employment. It also needs to reform to reflect women`s discrimination problems in the Russia. The basis of the article is in-depth interviews of working women. Women criticized the gender policy and wanted the government to guarantee women`s rights especially at work. So research shows that discrimination against women in the workplace is much worse than people thought. It is important to consider how to remove the hidden women discrimination in every other part of society.
