“It is reliably estimated that over half the several million learners who make up the world’s distance education population are women” (Burge and Lenskyj, 1990, p. 23). Home (1998) has conjectured that distance education is a practical option for adult female students trying to balance multiple roles and demands in their personal lives. This study was conducted to uncover the meaning and essence of the phenomenon being studied: namely the fundamental nature of female graduate students’ experiences pursuing a doctoral degree in education in an online learning environment and how they are balancing work, family and education. This study was about women and their experiences to complete their doctorate degree in an online environment.
