Moreover, due to the changing trends in the family structure, several women are becoming single mothers who have to raise children without a husband, which include the widows, divorcees, or separated. Past studies have shown that a number of women are becoming single mothers, not only because of the death of the husband, but also due to divorce and separation. As such, it has become a major concern of the government because most of the poor in the country are comprised of single mothers. One of the ways to eradicate poverty is to empower the single mothers. In order to survive and to become accepted in the society, single mothers have to compete and exhibit resilience. Moreover, working single mothers are confronting challenges in the workplace due to their status, in that, they have to juggle between job tasks and responsibilities as a parent. By exploring the single mothers’ work performance challenges in the context of the organization, the society’s mindset towards them may be changed. Therefore, this paper will digest the Asian aspects of pertinent issues in the current context.
