Stress among the Working and Homemakers Women with Respect to Their Family Type
Women in modern global world have to play a dual role as homemaker and career builder. The present investigation was conducted to examine the stress among the working and homemaker women with respect to their family type. It was hypothesized that there is significant difference between the working women and homemakers of nuclear and joint family type. In order to verify the above hypothesis a sample of 90 women’s were taken from Dharwad district, Karnataka State, India. Among them working women’s were 45 (nuclear family N=23, joint family N= 22) and homemakers were 45 (nuclear family N=22, joint family N= 23). To measure the stress, the stress scale developed by Singh (2002) was administrated individually to the subjects. The data were subjected to ‘t’ analysis and the major findings of the study revealed that women from nuclear family experience significantly more stress than joint family women. And also the finding revealed that working women from nuclear family undergo significantly high stress than working women from the joint family. The finding also states that there is no significant difference between homemaker women belongs to joint or nuclear family.
