Abstract

For researchers a conservative wave that covered the field of Russian politics became an impulse for reflection about what the field or space of politics is and in which way the changing political context turn into metamorphoses in normative political regulations and influential political actors discourse. Recently metamorphoses in gender discourse of this field became most evident in Russia. That is why the author makes an accent on the following issues: how interdependent in principle are the phenomena of political and gender; peculiarities of womens participation in political process in the field of conservative politics; reproduction of ontological morality theories as a customary attribute of conservative politics that by definition is aimed at consolidating existing social hierarchies. Special attention is given to the analysis of explanatory sociological concepts by P.Bourdieu (habitus) and E.Hoffmann (display) that describe effective mechanisms of traditional socialization, that is socialization by means of symbolic violence that guarantees institutional sustainability of gender owing to formation and maintenance of certain symbols and images explaining and strengthening - and therefore - producing and reproducing the patterns of domination and submission between men and women.
