This Russian Firm Is Offering Extra Cash To Women Employees For Wearing Skirts And Dresses To Work
7Whose idea was it?
Anastasia Kirillova works in the Department of Corporate Culture and Internal Communications and she has told the media that the idea of starting the “femininity marathon” was of CEO Sergei Rachkov. Anastasia also said that the CEO doesn’t want the Russian women to follow male hairstyles and wear pants, he wants them to get involved in handicrafts and devote themselves in educating children.
8Why such a campaign is a concern globally?
The company Tatprof has been slammed globally because the condition of women in Russia is not pretty good and surprisingly, the law of the country also doesn’t support them much. Moreover, there is a saying in Russia that if your hubby beats you, it means he loves you which clearly portray the mindset of people regarding domestic violence.
9Domestic violence decriminalized:
The Russian parliament, Duma passed the bill for decriminalizing domestic violence in February 2017 which leaves the Russian women in a vulnerable state. As per the new law, even if a woman is abused her family members won’t be punished for longer term if her bones are not broken and the abuse has not taken place more than once in a year.
