Most of the previous studies have attempted to explain a workers job satisfaction as function of individual’s personal characteristics and the characteristics itself. Significant number of female teachers in secondary education are considered to be the result of gender development in educational field. The female teachers importance has been recognized in the development of secondary education, but their level of satisfaction is not given attention. Therefore the primary aim of this study was to assess the Job Satisfaction of female teachers working in secondary schools. Based on interview of 100 secondary schools at Belgaum district (Karnataka state), where male (250) and female (250) teachers ratio is almost fifty – fifty. Here the male teachers have also been selected as respondents so that the causes of female teachers job satisfaction can be well identified. Teachers job satisfaction model by Linda Evans have been used to analyse the data as well as variables. The result showed that the factors like salary structure, educational qualification, career prospects, job security and culture (power-distance) are not significant difference between the job satisfaction of male and female teachers. Where as factors like culture (masculinity-feminity), supervision, physical environment, social environment and social status are significantly difference between the job satisfaction of male and female teachers. It is also found that female teachers have higher significant mean scores as compared to male teachers. Though female teachers have higher significant mean scores, female teachers opined strongly about femininity will influence more on their job satisfaction than the male teachers. The female teachers have positive opinion about physical and social environment than the male teachers because female teachers view job satisfaction is not only linked with nature of job but also linked with working environment. To them having a good physical environment as well as getting a harmonious interpersonal relation among colleagues is job satisfaction.
