The study looked at the work-family conflict of married working women and their satisfaction with work and family. A convenient sample of 200 women was selected to respond to a structured interview schedule. Varimax rotated principal component analysis resulted in work-family conflict emerging as a single dimension and satisfaction as two dimensions, that is, satisfaction with work and satisfaction with family. The results of the study showed that work-family conflict was significantly and negatively related to both aspects of satisfaction. Where support from spouse was considered significant, it was mostly in terms of career-related emotional support. This was positively correlated with both aspects of satisfaction, level of success achieved in career and spousal support in household chores.
