This article compares work-family conflict (WFC) among more than 2000 married Israeli Jewish and Arab women. The data was taken from Israel Social Surveys and included varied life-course variables that allowed to explore in depth relationships between WFC and family formation. Our findings reveal that Arab women experienced WFC more than Jewish women. Delaying first marriage and first birth and having more children are related to higher WFC. Furthermore, WFC was associated positively with women’s wage and work experience. The implications of the research and recommendations for public policymakers are discussed.
