The idea that women can be a powerful economic force needs to be universally accepted. Educated women have a better command over their lives and possess the capability to manage any situation. They get social recognition, which empowers them to achieve better social status and autonomy. Women face many impediments, and these hinder them from attaining higher work status. The observations till date show the numerous barriers women face in personal life, in academia, in the workplace, and in society.
The present study explores the personal, societal, and workplace challenges faced by working women in upgrading themselves through higher education. When women decide to take up higher education, they have to compromise some of their responsibilities, which lead to conflicts within the family. This current paper explores the success rate of working women in higher education despite the hurdles faced by them. Based on the objective, appropriate research methodology is adopted, and statistical tools are considered with graphical presentations.
