With the increase in profound changes in the lives of Indian Women, fulfilling the various degrees of roles in their life from maintaining their family, job, domestic help, business, looking after the traditions and various other domains or life facets has had an impact on their psychological well-being, quality of life and life satisfaction. However, when it comes to Jain community, women are bounded by a lot of cultural and religious factors affecting their overall satisfaction in life. Hence, it becomes essential to identify how life satisfaction differs among women with a job profile and one without it. The aim of the present study is to examine the difference on life satisfaction among married working and non-working women belonging in the Jain Community. The present study consisted of 55 participants (30- married working women & 25- married non-working women) belonged to the age range of 23- 39 years and had a minimum of marriage and work experience of at least 1 year. Participants belonged from Tier-1 cities of India namely, Bangalore, Chennai, Pune, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, and Ahmadabad. Data was collected through administration of Life Satisfaction Scale, through offline mediums.
