This study draws on gender issues relating to the employment and family responsibilities of Thai working women in order to better understand their management of these. The study thus attempts to address key gaps in the literature through a consideration of women’s careers, the social structure in Thailand, Thai women in the labour market, equal treatment according to merit and respondents’ experiences of being working mothers. This research thereby contributes to the research on employment and the family responsibilities of Thai working women. Thus, the study is not only an examination of gender issues in relation to employment and family responsibilities, but the data collected also enables the generation of interesting new hypotheses derived from the narratives provided by women concerning the impact of these dual spheres. Moreover, this study contributes to the wider literature on gender by seeking to explore the role of working mothers as a complex aspect of women’s experiences.
