Abstract: The research studies the problem of measuring the domestic burden upon woman in general, and working women in particular due to the lack of services that help for time saving, easing the workload, and providing for different domestic needs. Most women bear the burden of house work. They take care of the children and take care of the household’s needs, alone. Some of them also have productive jobs inside the house, or some kind of employment outside the house to get a limited salary that supports the family’s income and makes life more comfortable. The main research findings are as follows: 1- The volume of the domestic burden is equal to the volume of her work outside the house. 2- There is no difference between working and nonworking women. 3- The level of education does not affect the women’s average time spent on housework. 4- Most nonworking women do not want to work outside the house. 5- Women find it difficult to balance work outside the house with the house work. 6- Women’s salaries contribute to improving the standard of living of the family.
