The legacy of traditional understanding of family members from the past is that men are the bread winners and female are the care givers of family. It was challenged 1950s when the female participation had grown drastically in the field of workforce (Jeyawardena, 2003). Education plays an important role in the growth and development of any society. It is the responsibility of the teachers to impart quality education, and apart from this, the teachers have great responsibility to shape our nation. Hence teaching is considered as a noble profession, because of this, many female opt for this as it is also compatible with their roles and responsibilities (Dasmohapatra, 2015). Though it is very compatible, the work burden not only requires their time in the institutions but also makes challenges bigger in their houses so as to become prepared for the subsequent day apart from keeping students records and being there for different programmes. The female teachers in the profession are expected to be committed, dynamic, competitive, and straight forward both sentimentally and non-sentimentally and act in a “business like” manner and at home, they are expected to be sweet, soft, sensitive, adaptable, gentle, and fragile and fit according to the needs of the family and society (Abdul Gani, 2010).
