The aim of this research was to examine career obstacles of female academicians according to variables of exposure to mobbing, organizational commitment and job satisfaction. This was a descriptive comparative research. The population of this research was constituted by 371 women academicians who work for School of Physical Education and Sports and Faculties of Sport Sciences in Turkey. The whole universe was included in the study and the research was completed with 310 female academicians. The reliability of the study was 83.8%. The data collection tool of the research consists of two parts. In the first part, questions were posed to women academics about exposure to mobbing, job satisfaction and organizational commitment. In the second part, Career Barriers Scale of Women Academicians developed by Alaçam and Altuntaş (2015) was used. The data were evaluated in SPSS program and expressed as number, percentage and average. Independent samples t test and ANOVA were used in the analysis. As a result, the perception of career disability of female academics exposed to mobbing was higher than female academicians not exposed to mobbing. As female academicians' perception of job satisfaction and organizational commitment increases, their perception of career barriers also decreases.
