Stress is a part and parcel of everybody’s life. Though it is both men and women who deal with stress, particularly the working women who tend to be its most common victims. Majority (80%) of the Indian women experiences stress because of sex-specific job stressors and difficulties combining work and family. In this era women are expected to be the competitive workers in par with men in organizations than continuing to be part there for name sake. They need to perform extremely well in order to keep their job place and put their all efforts to maintain the balance between family and job. They experience a lot of indescribable stress and strain. Some of them express it through their behaviour toward subordinates, children and other neutral objects. Whereas some of them manage their time well and become productive in their organization and in family.
