The objective of this study was to explore and describe the relationship between self esteem among middle age women. Thirty women between the ages of forty-two and fifty-nine were evaluated according to the Index of Self-Esteem and the women were ranked according to each score.

The result of the study indicates that no significant relationship exists between self-esteem of married women, divorced, and those who never married. No relationship exists in the level of self-esteem and income. There is no statistical difference in the level of self-esteem between those who are employed meaningfully employed, and never employed. No statistical difference exists in the level of self esteem between those who have graduated from high school and those who have graduated from college. Similar results were found in ethnicity and respondents.
