The study probed  women who are employed in the hospitality business regarding their work status as well as their role in the upbringing of their children. In addition to this, it investigated how the expansionist and family system theories are affected by the roles that women play. The research also determined the problems that women experience when it comes to balancing their family and their career responsibilities. In order to figure out the indicated gap, the descriptive method was utilized. According to the findings, the vast majority of the women had at least a bachelor's degree, although having a monthly salary that was far lower than average. The vast majority of them held jobs that were only temporary. It is clear that they accomplished their primary responsibilities in terms of caring for their children, such as taking them to the pediatrician, breastfeeding them, teaching them how to use the toilet, sharing their bed with them, bathing them, and ensuring that they met their nutritional requirements. The expansionist and family system theories both use the scope of women's roles in the family as evidence to support their points of view. On the basis of the findings, it is possible to draw the conclusion that women have rigorous work schedules and require security of tenure in order to be protected in their jobs. They were having trouble striking a balance between the demands of their employment and those of their family, but they continued to fulfill the fundamental responsibilities that were expected of them in the family. Given that the majority of women do not have permanent employment status, it is advised that women evaluate or recalibrate their career goals as bases for following their career trajectory. In light of this recommendation, it is possible that women may review or recalibrate their career plans. In a similar vein, they may be more conscious of their skills and better able to strike a balance between the demands of their work and those of their family.
