Abstract

It can be argued that family support significantly contributes to the performance of working women. Thus family support is one of the important factors for increasing performance of the female teachers. In order to examine the level and intensity of family support, this research explores the social status of working women within family. The status of working women is directly linked to their income as well as their financial contribution to the family budget. In addition, this research also investigates the impact of the financial support to household on over all attitudes of family towards working women. In fact the financial contribution of working women improves the living standards of their families. Thus, the process of procuring support is based on mutual expectations in conscious and unconscious way. The outcome of these expectations can be found in the form of appreciation for the valuable contribution of women which generates motivation required for the effective performance of working women. The paper also recommends the key proposals for the improvement of the performance of the working women at workplace and it also suggests the ways and means about how to utilize the family support for increasing the performance of working women at workplace.
