Abstract [en]

In Russia, as in most other countries, differences between men’s and women’s entrepreneurial activities can be observed. This article, however, looks specifically into differences that can be linked to the survival of norms from the Soviet time. These are related to the rather different societal roles women and men had in the Soviet system as determined by the needs of the state in the building of socialism. The main argument here is that Soviet norms on gender relations continue to shape gender roles in contemporary Russia, which also contribute to explain the character  of women’s entrepreneurship in today’s Russia. The empirical data is based on observations and qualitative interviews in two Russian regions in 2002-2016.
