Extended meeting of the Committee of Rural Women of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation Women in the Development of Rural Areas
19 September 2018
(with the support of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation)

Currently, almost one in three agricultural enterprises in Russia are headed by women. Women also occupy 30% of municipal government positions. A woman stands at the helm of every fourth family livestock complex, and almost a third of the starting farmers who received a government grant in the last three years were women. At the same time, as in all other countries, rural women are the most socially vulnerable members of the population. Rural women can play a unique role in the creation of legal, social, and economic conditions for improving the standards of living in rural areas.

Discussion Questions:
  • The role of rural women in national socio-political life, solutions for social problems, and the creation of favourable conditions for women’s entrepreneurship and childcare
  • Social and engineering development of rural areas in today’s conditions
  • Agricultural tourism as development tool in rural areas.
