Women represent half of the total population. We cannot imagine enhancing a nation's or society's well-being by ignoring women's well-being. Therefore, the present study explores the nature of the subjective well-being of working women and assesses the mediating effect of meaningfulness of work between self-efficacy and positive affect. This study was undertaken on a sample of 114 working women from several schools and hospitals in Darbhanga town. Life satisfaction scale, PANAS, self-efficacy scale and meaningfulness of work scale were administered to them to collect their responses. To measure the correlations between self-efficacy and subjective well-being and between meaningful work and subjective well-being, Pearson's coefficient of correlation was used. Multiple regression was computed to measure the predicting effect of self-efficacy and meaningful work on two components of subjective well-being: a. life satisfaction and b. positive and negative experiences. Further, structural equation modelling was computed to assess the mediating effect. Results indicated that there were positive and significant correlations among self-efficacy, meaningfulness of work and components of subjection well-being. Multiple Regression and structural equation modelling indicate that meaningfulness of work has emerged as a substantial predictor of subjective well-being. It also has a mediating effect between self-efficacy and subjective well-being. Results were discussed in the light of previous research.
