And the survey shoooooooooows...o I'm sorry...on with the news..

Women are included in the senior management of nearly 90 percent of Russian companies, the highest rate among major countries, a survey has showed.

Grant Thornton, a business advisory firm, *****polled 6,900 medium-sized businesses from 26 major countries and territories******* in September and October last year.*****

The survey found women were included in the senior management of 89 percent of Russian companies, followed by 85 percent in the Philippines and 75 percent in the United States.

The Netherlands and Pakistan, each with 27 percent, were at the bottom, while in Japan the figure was 29 percent.

However, even in Russia, women accounted for only 42 percent of the total senior management posts. Japan came last in this category with eight percent.

"Analysing the results requires a certain amount of caution due to cultural differences," Grant Thornton said.

"Women's rights issues, religious constraints and, crucially in the modern world, economic ones, such as childcare costs, are all key factors which can help determine the levels of representation by women in senior management," it said.

The regions covered included the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Russia has jobs?...Since when?
