The Road Less Travelled: Challenges Related to the Work-Family Balance of Women Managers in Higher Education
S. P. Seema (University of Calicut, India)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-2819-8.ch017

Even though such tremendous changes have taken place, the patriarchal social set up insists on women's responsibilities towards family and children. The domestic roles of women are not shared by men despite the fact that women have shared the economic and social responsibilities of men.
