Home and work are two different worlds for working women and are often in conflict. This paper attempts to study the causes, consequences and correlates of workfamily conflicts among dual-career women. The study examines if the working women were able to combine their work and family, and identifies the constraints they faced and the family and organizational support they received in this process. The study also examines the strategies that working women adopt to contain the stresses of contradictory and competing dual role demands. The results suggest that many factors contribute to make role conflict of working women a reality. The sources of conflict are dependent on the availability of various support systems within and outside the family as well as the organization where she works.
