2011060901_120_02MOSCOW - They dress in all white, their insignia is the highest grade students earn in Russian schools, and their name essentially means "the teacher's pets."


The latest in a wave of public groups rushing to join Prime Minster Vladimir Putin's All-Russia National Front is a cliquey women's movement aiming to increase female participation in politics. Called the Otlichnitsy -- which roughly translated means "top students" -- the group was founded by Olga Kryshtanovskaya, a leading sociologist and a State Duma deputy from the ruling United Russia party.


At their inaugural meeting in Moscow on June 1, members said the movement's goal was to increase women's representation in politics from what they estimate as the current 6 percent to 50 percent "in all bodies of the authorities." They also say they will seek to elect a woman president in 2018.


"This is probably the first time that a movement like this has been formed not from above but from below -- that is, through the initiative of women," Kryshtanovskaya tells RFE/RL's Russian Service in explaining the movement's priorities. "What's more, these are not just women but those that we call 'otlichnitsy' -- successful women who haven't just studied and then done well at work, but those who have attained some kind of significant success in their line of work.


"We have Olympic champions, successful businesswomen, famous artists, scientists, professors, United Russia deputies.... These are women charged with success and charged with victory. They are active, energetic, and happy. That's the kind of aura we have around us."

With their all-white uniforms, the group's members dress the part. To further drive the point home, their insignia is the number 5, followed by a plus sign -- the highest grade in Russian schools and universities.


Prominent Supporters


The movement has already signed up several prominent women, including Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Maria Kiselyova, television presenter Nara Sheraliyeva, and opera singer Maria Maksakova. Spy-turned-television star Anna Chapman also attended the group's first meeting.


But not all successful Russian women are sold on the movement. Olga Zdravomyslova, executive director of the Gorbachev Foundation think tank, is even skeptical about its branding.   


"The first association with the word 'otlichnitsy' is that of a highly disciplined, obedient, go-getting girl with a white bow in her hair and a white apron," Zdravomyslova says. "She listens to the teacher and, of course, studies very well, is always first to put up her hand in class and without a moment's hesitation answers the question. I think we all know that people like that are not liked in school."


Moreover, analysts believe the Otlichnitsy is actually a thinly disguised springboard into the All-Russia People's Front, the political alliance floated by Putin less than a month ago but that is rapidly gaining followers.


Putin's press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, told local media last week that more than 450 organizations have already pledged their allegiance. "I think it's worth joining," Kryshtanovskaya said when asked about the front.
