Last week ended the hearings on the suit unemployed 24-year-old activist of the movement “Saratov Amazon” Anastasia Borzunova, filed a lawsuit against a local employment service in connection with gender discrimination and unequal wage conditions for men and women.
“I struggle with glass barrier and misogyny* in this Patriarchal office, not only for themselves but for their sisters, who are in a difficult position. In this country, where masculinity has taken a dominant on all fronts, the woman can’t find work because of the biased attitude. Even the most stupid, unemployed men are given more opportunities when women take on a humiliating job for ridiculous money”, — said during the trial, the activist Anastasia Borzunova.
Ultimately, the court fully satisfied the plaintiff’s claim, obliging the municipal authority to provide to the citizen the highest paying job, previously offered only to men. In the absence of other vacancies, the employment service, offered the woman a position working at a mercury mine.
However, the positive decision of the court of Saratovka was dissatisfied.
“I’m a woman and future mother, I can’t work in such a dangerous place. It’s illegal,” she said indignantly.
It is also worth noting that unemployment benefits to the citizen in the course of litigation were paid properly.
*Misogyny called interiorization stereotypical negative views regarding women, detrimental to establishing normal relations not only in the family but also at work.
