This study aims to understand if women academics in Turkey experience their double shift as a role conflict or role expansion. Previous studies on women academics in Turkey generally found that most of them experience their double shift as a role conflict. This study is a qualitative research made with 14 women academics. The findings suggest that they experience role conflict and role expansion simultaneously during their double shift. The present study supports previous international and national research suggesting that women academics’ role conflict is accompanied by their role expansion and thus breaks the old role conflict - role expansion dichotomy. Moreover, according to this research, voluntariness in acquiring new roles might be significant when it comes to explain how women academics in Turkey interpret their double shift as a role expansion.
