In earlier centuries, the term “Women empowerment” was treated as almost non-existent. A woman was synonymous with a care taker, a home maker or even a baby sitter. Today when women feel the necessity to be independent financially, emotionally and socially, it turns out to be an imperative requirement to analyze the effect it holds on the upbringing of their children. True that women empowerment endows and privileges women to take life-determining decisions in their personal journey to liberty. But how far their children become victims of this new development is the contention here. In my study I propose to dwell on the psychological impact the children of working mothers and home makers anchorage, during their growing up years. Do the children of working mothers get a more gratifying life than the children of non working mothers and are they capable of facing the challenges of life at par with the children of non working mothers? A sample of 80 children (40 of working mothers and 40 of non working mothers) was carried out for 5 personality traits viz. openness, neuroticism, conscientiousness, extroversion, and agreeableness. Statistical analysis was performed on the collected data and t value was found for 1% and 5% level of significance. The present study also oversees adjustment pattern and emotional maturity of such children.
