PROBLEMS OF KUWAITI WORKING WOMEN AND PLANNING TO DEAL WITH THEM: A FIELD STUDY

Auther : By: Dr. Saud Al-Gowayer

          The role of women in society and their contribution to socio-economic development have been stressed, particularly in the developing countries.  The third development plan in Kuwait has expressed the importance of this role in different sectors of the development plan.

          The aim of this study is to explore the problems and consequences associated with women working outside their household and the potential role of social work in this respect.  To this end the study has adopted a theoretical framework, with emphasis on the initial forms of work taken by women, joining the labor force and impediments to their role in development activities.

         In terms of methodology, the study has adopted the descriptive mode of research, namely the social survey.  The population of the study consisted of Kuwaiti working women with children.  The survey covered working women in the following locations:

1.      Farwania  High School (girls) (25).

2.     Farwania Intermediate School (girls) (37).

3.     Administration of Voluntary Agencies, Ministryof Social Affairs and Labor (13).

4.     Administration of Islamic Studies, Ministry of Justice (15).

       The research tools consisted of two types of questionnaire.  The first was designed to the working women in the locations above mentioned.  The second questionnaire was designed to get information from women-social-workers concerning problems faced by working women, and the role of the social worker vis-à-vis these problems with emphasis on children’s problems.

       The study has reached considerably important conclusions concerning the motives of women joining the labor force and the attitudes of the husband in this respect.  It revealed the effects of women’s work on the socialization process and the problems faced by the children due to mother’s work.  Moreover, the study pointed out the extent to which the family is affected by women’s work and the role of women in the family, particularly with modes of consumption and school problems.  The view of social workers and their role in dealing with school problems was also assessed.  The study ended with a number of recommendations designed to deal effectively with the ramifications of women’s work outside their household.
