This paper is devoted to the problem of gender inequality in the Soviet children's literature. There gender stereotypes are considered along with the influence of the authors’ characteristics on the representation of these stereotypes in Soviet children's books recommended by FGOS NOO and FGOS OOO. The main attention is paid to the author’s characteristics such as the author’s birth year, his / her gender and the socio-economic status of the author's family. The measurement of the socio-economic status of the author's family is provided with the coding of the author's parents' profession using the ISCO and the ISEI. This research paper highlights the main types of characters that are identified through the cluster analysis. The characteristics of literary characters that represent gender inequality are also explored. Logistic regression is used as a statistical model to identify the relationship between the author’s characteristics and the presence of gender stereotypes.
