How Ukrainian society perceive modern Ukrainian woman: more wisdom and less liberties

The ideal Ukrainian woman should be faithful, gentle and wise, but also beautiful and caring. These are the results of a survey conducted by R&B Group. According to sociologists, these properties primarily characterize modern Ukrainian woman as a good wife, mother and housewife, writes Ukrainian web portal

“In our view, the analysis of these qualities shows that their totality forms the moral basis without which a successful family life is unthinkable,” experts say.

It also emerged that overall the views of men and women on this issue are almost the same, but there are some slight differences.

For example, men are more likely to believe that a true woman should be faithful (53% vs. 37%) and trustworthy (21% vs. 16%). But for women, it is more important to be wise (36% vs. 29%), smart (15% vs. 11%) and financially independent (12% vs. 7%).

At the same time, the youngest Ukrainian women (up to 30 years old) are more likely to value beauty, intelligence and independence, and Ukrainian women aged 30-40 years – femininity, care and reliability.

At the same time, 40-50-year-old Ukrainian women were more likely to choose hostility, security and prudence, 50-60-year-old Ukrainian women were more likely to choose wisdom and skill, and women over 60 years of age emphasized the importance of decency and hostility.

1801 citizens of Ukraine participated in the survey. These were representatives of all Ukrainian regions, except for the uncontrolled territories of Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

Opinions differ depending on the place of residence of the respondents

Women from Central Ukraine more often mentioned wisdom, honesty and hostility as main quality of iconic modern Ukrainian woman.

Women from Southern Ukraine were more likely to choose care, intelligence, and independence.

To women of the East of Ukraine tenderness, outward appeal, sociability and craftsmanship seemed more important than other features.

Women from the West of Ukraine more often mentioned in their answers prudence, although their answers almost coincide with the opinions of women across the country.

“If we talk about” eternal “images, the opinion of Ukrainians from the West is always representative. In Western ukraine people preserved traditional ideas about global concepts that are somehow broadcast by all residents of Ukraine,” – explains psychologist Iryna Danchenko.

The disadvantages of Ukrainian women according to survey

People think that modern Ukrainian women are too prone to bad habits – 23% of those polled chose this option. Honesty (20%) and loyalty (15%) also got to the top of the absences of modern Ukrainian women.

Often was mentioned about the lack of wisdom (14%), hostility (13%) and prudence (13%). A little less complained about Ukrainian women’s lack of tenderness, honesty and care.

At the same time, men more often than women spoke about the shortage of reliability among modern Ukrainian ladies (15% of men against 9% of women) and care (11% against 8%).

Women were more likely to report a lack of material security (11% vs. 6% of men) and independence (11% vs. 5%).
