Attitude to men

What makes Russian women drastically different from western women is their attitude to men. Feminism reigns in the West for more than half a century, while it isn’t even close to dominance in Russia.

She must respect him and obey him.

In accordance with patriarchal upbringing, woman’s place is home. Man is the main family supplier, while woman does housekeeping, cooking, and bringing up children. Of course, in the Soviet times, much of the concept had been abolished, but DNA of Russian women had already absorbed it. So, she is fine working and she will be fine if you support her, while she devotes herself to the housekeeping chores.
