Three hundred women were studied in two groups group 1 consisted of 150 housewives and group 2 included 150 working women. The symptom checklist 90 (SCL-90) questionnaire was utilized for testing their mental health. SPSS-15 was used for analyzing the data.

  Results : The results indicated that working women had better mental health than housewives (p= 0.0001). Moreover among the working women, the medical group had better mental health than the other groups (p= 0.006). There was no significant relationship between SCL-90 score and the number of children and also working history of women. But, there was a significant relationship between mental health of working women and their husbands´ satisfaction of their jobs (p=0.002).
