Not quite relevant to the topic, but interesting to know:
„By the end of the 19th century, the position of women in Russian society was not as unequivocally disenfranchised as it is commonly thought to be.
Women found ways to solve their familiar problems, manage enterprises and firms. Of course, all these opportunities were not easy to implement and only the most energetic of Russian women succeeded.
Russian Imperial law did not discriminate between men and women in the sphere of business ownership.
Imperial Law also made no distinction between women and men in terms of taxes. A woman could set up a commercial enterprise and join the merchant class, provided that she paid the taxes.
