Abstract

This paper argues that both the impact of gender and work‐family conflict itself are likely to increase in international working scenarios, which may involve the physical relocation of the entire family. In such cases, the boundaries between work and home become blurred due to the involvement of the whole family and there is often disruption of traditional family roles, causing increasing stress. Work demands are also likely to increase for the female expatriate due to the combined effect of role and culture novelty, thus enhancing the possibility of work‐family conflict. The impact of gender role theory is apparent in three key areas: work, partner and family.
