Thesis Abstract / Summary:

This study highlights the pull factors that are encouraging women to participate in the labour market. More importantly, this study is about identifying the effects both positive and negative that are attributed to the workforce. The target of this research are Gozitan married women in the 25-35 age cohort in the role of workers as well as members of a family (of orientation or procreation). In fact, these effects are perceived in the light of three very important contexts; the effects on the married female worker, on the family as well as on the children. Investigation has been made possible by utilising structured interviews with 100 working married women from a Gozitan village. The aim of this survey is to find out whether there is a relationship between the occupations of married women and the so-called effects that have developed as a result of doing paid employment outside the home. This is followed by an analysis of the research results, which are intertwined with a discussion on the survey findings.
