    The list of potential presidential candidates has been recently updated with one more female candidate, Russian journalist and human rights activist Yekaterina Gordon, who announced on Monday her intention to participate in the election in March 2018, following a similar decision made by Russian TV host Ksenia Sobchak earlier in October.

    Some people may think that Russian political culture is a male-dominated one, but women in Russia have been involved in politics for a long time and have run for the presidency several times since the beginning of the century.
