Aabha Gupta

Abstract

Although significant gains have been made in the last few years with increasing number of women entering in work force, the struggle to come out of the stereotyped picture is still continued. There are still discriminations, which exist, in the Indian society. Women leaders, activists, business women and women at high posts are still considered less competitive and less capable in comparison to men. It is, therefore, essential to examine the personality development of women right from their childhood. The role stereotypes in the society have to be neutralised. There is a great deal of evidence that the informal training in the home is important in determining the well being of a child. The family climate, environment and school plays a vital role in the development of an individual. Keeping in mind all these factors, a study was conducted on the IXth class girls studying in selected single sex and co-educational schools of Baroda city. Findings of the study revealed that SES of the students did not have significant influence on their personality whereas their academic achievement made a real high significant influence on the selected personality aspects.
