The exploratory study examines the relationship of Meta-cognitive thinking and perceived women’s social freedom. The sample comprised of 150 unmarried working and non working women, their age range is in between 22 to 45 years and they are at least graduates. Simple random sampling technique is used to generate data from north-eastern region of Agra. The results reveal that there is no significant relationship between total scores of Meta-cognitive thinking (MTS) and women’s social freedom (WSF) scores as r =.007, where p > 0.05. It is observed that there is very less difference in the relationship between MTS and WSF of working and non-working women, the coefficient of correlation is not significant for both the groups, as r = -.135(Working) and r=.164 (Nonworking), where p > 0.05 level of significance. Data is also analyzed with the eight dimensions of meta-cognitive. It is evident from the r value of self- awareness for working women, that is r = -.228*, where p < 0.05 level of significance. Which means higher the self awareness of working women, the perception of social freedom will be lower as the relationship is inverse. Further, the r value on self- motivation and perceived social freedom of non-working women (r = .239*) is positively significant, where p < 0.05 level. It indicates higher the self motivation of non-working women more will be their perception of social freedom being high.
