The primary purpose of the study was to examine the self efficacy of working women in Indore city. An attempt was also made to analyze the association between the levels of self efficacy among the working women in relation to their demographic status. A total of 100 respondents (50 married and 50 unmarried working women) were administered the General Self efficacy Questionnaire. The marriage duration was between 5-35 years and minimum age was 25 years (for both). The age range was divided into three age-group: Between 25-34 years, Between 35-44 years and Above 45 years. Snowball sampling method was used to collect data. Women who possessed degrees of Graduation, Post Graduation and any other professional degree were considered as highly educated and below Under Graduate degree were considered as less educated. The results revealed that the marital status does not affect the generalized levels of self efficacy of working women in Indore city. However self efficacy of old unmarried working women was found to be high. Also working married women seek more economic independence as compared to unmarried working women who thrive for status, self efficacy being the same in both the cases. The study was conducted on working women in Indore city using General Self efficacy Scale. Specific scales may be used in future research in different domains to get information on possible means of intervention with large sample size.
