S Arunpriya, Dr. P Ananda Murugan

Dual earner families are increasing in the present day were women take an active participation in supporting the men financially along with her traditional role. Employed mothers continue to be more closely associated with caretaking than employed fathers. Employed mothers face a unique bind between their caretaking and employment expectations. In a transitioning society like India, were more young women are becoming the part of the work force, the pressure created due to the technological, structural and demographic changes in the employment coupled with the demand for more multi skilled and flexible knowledge workers, has affected their quality of life, psychological wellbeing and health. This has resulted in a situation where women entering the workforce today are laying emphasis on the importance of work and family: hence there is a need to examine the phenomenon of the work-family conflict of Indian working women.
