Abstract: In recent years the study of women in Malta, both from a qualitative as well as from a quantitative point of view has increased. This quantitative study has shown that despite the increased participation of women in the labour market, mothers in dual-earner families continue to carry the double burden of work and family. Work and family can be two of the most fulfilling aspects of life and many mothers especially in the last three decades--have chosen to pursue both. Women are assuming significant roles in the workplace and, in many cases, are entering domains previously dominated by men. This has created a new set of challenges that husbands and wives must face together. Trade unions and governments have an important role to play in the establishment of family-friendly practices in the workplace
