Abstract
The paper tries to explore and
reflect life conditions of working
and non-working women in
Iran. Women aged 18-50 are
examined in Tehran City. The
paper examines how women’s
employment contributes to the
growth of cities and shrinking
family size. In Iran, increase in
the number of female students in
recent decades has contributed
to the larger ratio of working
women in different sectors. The
paper surveys the quality of life
of both working and domestic
women in the larger city of Tehran
where an increasing number of
women are in employment, or
aspire to that. Through a relevant
literature review, the paper
proceeds to empirically study the
quality of life of 521 women in two
groups. Through administering
questionnaires, various variables
associated with the lives of
working and non-working women
are investigated.
The present research is based on
the main hypothesis that: “Twoincome
families achieve better
quality of life”
