The past few decades have witnessed a most dramatic change in the status of women. Employment and educational opportunities for women accompanied these developments. In many parts of the world, feminist movements have been organized to demand equal rights with the men. This set-up where women perform in both traditional and career roles is not without its problems. This study is an analysis of husband-wife roles among Filipino professionals. It seeks to identify and describe the role of the working wife. Specifically, this study will analyze and examine various things like wife's conception of her role and husband's conception of wife's role; husbands' and wives' attitudes towards wife's working; division of labor in the house, etc. The major limitation of this study is in the homogeneity of the sample. Both husbands and wives seem confused about tile role of the wife. Both were rather inconsistent on certain statements in the inventory--not quite traditional but not really companionship-oriented.
