First Female Electric Train Drivers Entered Moscow Metro

A year ago, an order of the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation came into force, which allows women machinists to work. Now, after successfully passing the certification, women will take the first passengers, the official Telegram-channel of the Moscow Department of Transport reports.  

It is noted that the trains, driven by female drivers, will run along one of the most modern lines of the Moscow metro, Filevskaya. For the workers, a uniform was developed, taking into account the wishes of both current employees and the experience of male machinists. It is specified that women themselves will be able to choose whether to go to work in skirts or in trousers.

It is reported that the Moscow Metro ranks second in the world in terms of the number of women employed (36% of the total number of employees). So, in honour of the first day of work of the ladies, the Moscow Metro, together with the manufacturer of Barbie dolls, prepared an exhibition of dolls dressed as women of different professions at the Vorobyovy Gory station. Also, there were Troika cards developed depicting Barbie dolls.
