Work-Family Conflict : A qualitative study regarding how working mothers experience the relationship between work-life and family-life (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur arbetande kvinnor med barn under fem år upplever relationen mellan arbetsliv och familjeliv. Vi undersöker vilka konflikter som kan uppstå, och hur dessa hanteras.

Studien är kvalitativ och bygger på sex semistrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet har därefter analyserats genom en tematisk analys.

Resultatet av vår studie visar att kvinnor upplever en obalans mellan arbetsliv och familjeliv till följd av bristande socialt stöd i hemmiljön, vilken i sin tur leder till konflikter.

Slutsatsen är att dessa kvinnor upplever stress som en konsekvens av den upplevda konflikten mellan arbetsliv och familjeliv och att denna stress till stor del kan tillskrivas ojämlik uppdelning av arbetsuppgifter i hemmet.

Abstract [en]

This study examines how working women with children under the age of five experience the relationship between work-life and family-life. We examine what conflicts can arise and how theese women cope with them.

To learn more about this relationship we have used a qualitative method and collected data based on six semi-structured interviewes. The data has then been analysed using a manifest content analysis.

The results show that the women in this study experience work-family conflict as a result due to lack of social support from their spouse.

The conclusion is that theese women experience stress, which can be derived to inequality in housework, as a consequence of the work-family conflict.
