Women earning potential and workplace environment are negatively related while household responsibilities and financial needs are positively correlated to women work‐life conflict Research limitations/implications – This research selected sample from only two cities Pakistan i.e. Attock and Islamabad. Future studies could select other cities and compare results with city of selected sample. This research used random sampling procedure, which is the main limitation of this study. Future studies could use stratified random sampling procedure with more sample size. Practical implications – It is hoped that the findings of this study will assist the human resource managers, practitioners and strategy makers to better understand women problems.
