Abstract

The role of women in society has been a role that is long overlooked. In the turn of the 21st century
people slowly started to recognize the work that women were doing both at work place and at home.
Though majority of work women do at home, especially in a third world country like India goes
unnoticed, it is just now that people have started to recognize that unpaid work. On the other front
though a lot of women have started to take up work, the hurdles faced by them are far greater than that
of their working male counterparts. The researcher choose the field of journalism and conducted a
survey and an in-depth interview among 118 working women journalist who worked at 14 different
news organization across Tamil Nadu. The research aims to find out whether the working women
journalists have a work-life balance and if not, it aims to seek out the reasons for the imbalance. The
research employs statistical techniques such as ANOVA to find out the factors that affect the worklife balance and to back up the finding of the ANOVA test the results of the in-depth qualitative
interview is utilized.
