Allahdino Abro


Although the larger portion of the world population is women but hardly 25% women are employed. Furthermore, they have been given second class status. Considering the need and importance of job for women, a survey regarding the impact of job on the social status of women has been conducted. A sample of 100 employed and 100 unemployed women was randomly selected from access population for the study. The findings of the study showed that there was significant effect of the job on the social status and empowerment of women. The employed women of the urban area had got more opportunities than the employed women of rural area. The marriages of women were also closely associated with their jobs. However, to unemployed women, the social status of men and women was equal but employed women, rejecting the statement, believed that social status of men was higher than women at their work place. Nevertheless, the social status of employed women was higher than unemployed men.
