Why women are more engaged than men

Researchers warn women to stay at work for long hours, as there is a high probability that they become victims of depression, unlike men.

Women who worked more than 55 hours a week were more likely to have depression than women who worked 35 to 40 hours per week, the Daily Mail reported.

The researchers pointed out that those women have symptoms of depression more 7.3%, such as feeling of value or inability, unlike women working normal hours.

The study found that men who worked long hours did not get depressed, but were more likely to work if they worked on weekends.

The authors of the study suggest that the gender gap is due to the fact that even when women leave work, they bear the burden of domestic chores at home.

The lead author of the study, Jill Weston, of the University of London, confirmed that the results call for greater support for women, who work long hours in the workplace.

"Although we can not pinpoint the real causes of long-term exposure to depression, we know that many women face the additional burden of doing more housework than men, and the end result is their overall hours of work Wide scale, additional time pressures and significant responsibilities. "

"We hope that our results will encourage employers and policy makers to think about how to reduce burdens and increase support for women who work long or irregular hours without restricting their ability to work when they wish.

In their study, the researchers found that married women with children at home tend to be less likely to work long hours than unmarried women, while married men were more likely to put more hours in office than men who did not have a family .

The researchers drew conclusions from recent studies from data collected from more than 23,000 British adults tracked since 2009 for the study, published in the journal BMJ Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
