Women have changed; they entered into a world previously occupied solely by men. In recent decades, more and more women have achieved notable progress in occupations previously reserved for men. The present study aimed to examine the relationship between women’s desire for social freedom and power motive among college going girls. The study was conducted on a sample of 200 college going girls in the age range from 18-26 years who were enrolled in a large university of Bihar. WSF scale developed by M. Saha and power motive inventory developed by H.Ojha were employed to capture responses. Result shows that women with high and low WSF score had differing significantly with respect to their need for power motive. Results also indicate that all educated girls had a moderate level of WSF score and moderate urges of power motive. Thus, findings revealed that co-efficient of correlation between the scores of WSF and power motive among girls was positive and significant at .01 level.
