This paper is based on a study that was conducted to identify and analyse the factors affecting the performance of female teachers in urban and rural areas of Bahawalpur (Southern Punjab). Being descriptive study, survey method was adopted for data collection to find out the factors. A group of 1020 students and 204 teachers of high schools/higher secondary schools were recognized as sample to accomplish the study. Two questionnaires, one each for the teachers and students were developed on Likert type scale and data was collected. Data was analysed by using t-test and ANOVA in SPSS software. The in depth investigation of the findings open a number of options for teachers and planners to manipulate the relationship for promoting the performance of female teachers. Poor socio-economic status of teachers affects the teacher's performance. Poor socio-economic condition of the area where school is situated decreases the teacher's motivation but society gives more respect to female teachers as compare to male teachers. Undue political interference also affects the teacher's performance. A positive relationship was found between most of the factors and the performance of female teachers.
