Being women is always a tough responsibility, whether it is for working women or household women. They have to trade-off between work domain and family domain, in perspective sector and the area chosen. The dynamics of the work environment have exerted enormous pressure on working women as they need to cope with virtually two full time jobs-one at work place and other one at home. Review of this study is to reveal the psychological health of women, how religion plays a significant role and how it impacts the coping strategy of women. Three types of scales were used. The Centrality of Religiosity Scale (CRS) of Huber and Huber (2012) measure the importance of religious aspects in one’s life. This scale is used to observe the consequence of religion and its beliefs among household and working women. Further, Rotter’s Locus of Control scale by Rotter (1966) was used to find the magnitude of controlling techniques in women. At last, Coping Scale which is given by Hanby, Grych and Banyard (2013) was applied for measuring the Coping ability and capacity across working women and household women. This study will help to understand the psychological health of women in context of religiosity, controlling skills and the management of coping various situations.
