In today’s time rural women are managers, secretaries, assistants, clerk, peons, teacher, political leader and even guards. While doing these jobs they have to face many problems. This paper explores the problems of rural working women of Fazilka district of Punjab. The total sample size comprised of 90 respondents from all the six villages were selected randomly. Rural working women face lot of problems such as child rearing problems, neglect of family responsibilities, domestic work problems, misbehaves by family members, problems of participation in social activities with family member’s etc.Child care facilities and child care leave for working women should be providedby every organization. Support system at family level and at community level could prove too helpful and goes a long way in mitigating the socio-economic and psychological consequences faced by victims.
