Young women today are anticipating involvement in both career and family. The
competing demands of family and work often result in work-family conflict. A survey
was administered to 124 female college students exploring the importance they place on
work and family roles, the expectations they have for combining these roles, and their
attitudes toward planning for multiple roles. Identity theory provides a foundation for
understanding the choices women make regarding their anticipated participation in work
and family roles. The results suggest that although college women are expecting to have
demanding careers and involved family lives, they are not planning realistically in order
to facilitate the combining of career and family roles with a minimum of conflict.
