Abstract

Social and cultural factors have historically kept most women from entering the job market in Pakistan. Working women in Pakistan face social and economic disadvantages relative to men working in the same field. With the recent challenges in society caused by the increasing feminine population, financial need, and limited educational facilities for girls and women; women tend to enter the job market more than earlier. Still social and cultural factors have kept most women from entering the job market. Considering the situation in Pakistan, this study examined the relationship between work-life conflicts, job satisfaction, and the turnover ratio of the female working gender in Pakistan. The data is collected through questionnaires from female staff working in academic institutions, banks, and NGOs operating in Pakistan. The sample size was kept to 350 female staff members to find out the importance of work-life conflict, job satisfaction, and job departure. The study found that work-life conflict has a significant impact on job satisfaction.
