Crossing Borders in Gender and Culture
While gender issues are almost always multidimensional and complex, this book discusses them from a cultural angle and with a focus on crossing borders, to represent their concepts meaningfully and to illuminate their realities as sharply as possible. Its five parts detail specific aspects and issues within that focus, namely communication, literary representation, equality and violence, work and politics, and cross-cultural connections. This combination of a wide topical range with specific discussions of gender issues makes the volumes insights worthwhile for a wide range of readers, from individuals and groups engaging with current gender challenges, to institutional and political decision-makers entrusted with improving gender relations on national or international levels, up to social, economic or educational institutions empowered to implement such solutions in everyday reality. Its unity in diversity contributes to gender and cultural studies by offering considerations and conclusions that are specific and generalizable, theoretically robust and empirically tested, professionally rational and poetically ravishing.
This research is devoted to the increasing role of women in management of banks in Russia. Data collection is based on public information from 178 websites of banks as well as other sources. This research demonstrated that in 91% of banks at least one member of Executive Board is a woman, and in 22.5% the chairman of the Executive Board is a woman. Private banks prefer female top managers more than public banks. In addition, there are less female top managers in investment banks rather than in retail, corporate, and universal banks. The research also shows that female top managers have only local banking experience and male top managers have a more diverse working experience.
