Abstract:
Women have gained more and more space in various areas and this development also occurs in the field of entrepreneurship. In Kerala, it is recognised that women entrepreneurs face many difficulties when trying to reconcile their work with the family. The conflict occurs in several aspects of life. The important objective of this paper is to analyse the challenges faced by women entrepreneurs of Kerala to reconcile the conflict between work and family. This study adopted the multiple cases research strategy and ten women entrepreneurs are selected from the Kannur district of Kerala state. By the social structure of Kerala, women have great responsibility towards the family and in an attempt to reconcile the multiple roles these women often face conflict and over load. It is noticed that the need for balance between entrepreneurship and family create physical and emotional stress.
