Abstract :

The present investigation is an attempt to study the life satisfaction of working women and housewives. The study sample comprised of 50 working women and 50 housewives, selected from Dharwad city. A life satisfaction scale developed by Sinha and Sharma (1979) was administered on the sample. The obtained responses were scored and subjected to “t” and “x2” tests. The results showed that the working women and housewives are not differing significantly from each other in their life satisfaction. Incidentally it is found that age, educational level and number of children of women are not significantly associated with their life satisfaction.
