Women are the most vulnerable group of the society. They need to be physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically empowered. Positive capacities are directly related to enhance psychological strength of females either they are working outside the home or in the home. So, the research has been taken to assess and compare positive capacities among two different age groups of working women. The objective of the study was to assess and compare positive capacities in two different age groups i.e. 29-38 years& 49-58years of working women. The data was collected on the sample of 200 adult working women with experience of minimum two years. Four tools i.e Heartland forgiveness Scale (HFS), GQ-6, General Self-efficacy (GSE) and Meaning in Life (MLQ) questionnaire were used to assess positive capacities. The data was analysed using descriptive (Mean and SD) and inferential (t-test) statistical analysis. The analysis resulted in significant group differences between the two age groups on four positive capacities- forgiveness, gratitude, general self-efficacy and meaning in life.
