Abstract

This study aims to know the impact of psychological aggression and physical assault at home on workplace performance of women. This is a quantitative study which is carried out by employing purposive sampling. We identified 150 working women facing domestic violence working in different organizations located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. Out of this identified sample, only 121 women participate in the study. Additionally, the supervisors of these 121 women were also considered for knowing the evaluation of work performance. This study involved the development of two questionnaires the items of which were adapted from the Revised Conflicts Tactics Scale (CTS2) originally developed by (Straus, 1979) and from the study of Farh and Cheng (1999). The study reveals that psychological aggression proved to be strongly influencing variable than the physical assault. This paper suggests that the partners of the working women need to avoid psychological aggression along with abandoning the use of physical assault on them or at least a partner should minimize the frequency of attempts of both variables so that the workplace performance of women may increase and the women may perform better in their jobs.
