ABSTRACT

Indian women have had their fair share of power struggle over the decades. Even though the gender equality and women empowerment has been on the rise, Indian women still continually face increased stressors in their personal as well as professional life domains. This study was designed along the same lines to investigate the social and family role stress, feminist identity development, meaning in life and quality of relationships among working and non-working women in Jaipur city. The sample size of 100 was segregated on the basis of their working status (50 non working women and 50 working women). The objective of the research was to find the discrepancy in the aforesaid variables among the two groups. The following research tools were employed to test the hypotheses: Social Family Role Stress Scale (SFRS) (Vadra & Akhtar, 1990), Feminist Identity Development Scale (FIDS) (Bargad & Hyde, 1991), Meaning in Life Questionnaire (MLQ) (Steger et al., 2006), and Relationship Assessment Scale (Hendrick, 1988).
