With contributions from members of the Institute for Comparative Labour Relations Research and other specialists in the field, this book sheds new light on the way people in Russia cope with economic reform in post-Soviet Russia. This book identifies and explains gender differences in responses to Russia's transformed economic environment, and reveals the way in which these influence both a labor market outcomes and the well-being of men and women. Drawing upon analysis based on original research including a series of qualitative interviews, the experienced team of sociologists chart the progress of 120 men and 120 women through the turbulent Russian labor market of 1999-2001. The study includes chapters on the way gender norms inherited from the Soviet era have influenced responses to transition; sex segregation and discrimination in the labor market; gender differences in work orientations and behavior; who benefits from networks; and which life events are most likely to initiate downward economic trajectories.
