Abstract

Women's satisfaction related to their marriage and work bring about interesting discussion in this study. Feminism has been opening work opportunities for women to be equal to men and to allow women to be more developed and independent in society. However, conflict of the double role-women's work and women's role in marriage as a wife and mother-to women seems continuously discussed. In general, conflicts occur as consequences between the two commitments, which are demanding that women perform excellently both in their marriage and at work. The conflicts include women's time management, priority need, energy division, decision making, love and attention, etc. Therefore, it is important to assess the level of women's satisfaction with regard to her work in order to identify how strongly a woman's work influences a woman's satisfaction in married life. In this study, we assess women's satisfaction in marriage with respect to several kinds of occupations from a quality perspective. The quality perspective offers a new way of assessing women's satisfaction by using a Quality Function Deployment (QFD) method. The QFD method, which is usually applied in industry, can be adopted in assessing women's satisfaction towards their marriage and work life. QFD produces a friendly interpretation of highly complex and intangible matters around married life; thus, it makes the assessment of women's satisfaction in marriage and work easier. By using QFD, we determine the variables and dimensions with respect to marital characteristics by integrating previous studies and considering expert opinions. Many activities carried out in married life are representative of a woman's role in marriage. In addition, QFD also compares the level of satisfaction with respect to a woman's occupation in a clearer and simpler way. The comparison leads to the identification of which dimension is the most satisfying and which one is less than the other, with respect to a different kind of occupation. In this study, we perform the QFD method on assessing women's satisfaction by utilizing data gathered from a questionnaire survey based on 587 respondents across West Malaysia, Malaysia. The effort to enhance women's satisfaction of their success in playing the double role in the marriage and at work is our main consideration. This study may contribute a new point of view regarding the progress of feminism in the social aspect and in women's quality of life.
