Abstract

This article examined how female academics in some selected universities in Ogun State, in Nigeria, cope with the stress of balancing their work and family life. Data was obtained using a semi-structured questionnaire. Relying on the findings of this study, a proposition was made that utilizing more coping strategies would allow female academics to achieve a balance in both their work and family life.
