Men and women tend to react differently to stress—both psychologically and biologically.[1]

Research investigating gender-specific components of work-related stress showed that women experience higher perceived stress.[2]

Women and men are at risk for different types of stress-related disorders, with women at greater risk for depression and anxiety. Men and women respond to stress differently, women experience greater sadness and anxiety.[3]

A substantial number of women (though not all) are experiencing uncomfortable somatic, psychological, cognitive, and vasomotor symptoms at midlife. Substantial proportions are pulled in multiple directions by adolescent children and aging parents. A significant group of women at midlife cannot afford to retire and, therefore, must remain in difficult occupational situations, while others confront discrimination and violence in their everyday lives.[4]

Woman track team talks with women in order to find new ways how we can help. One of the first, very alarming information we learned during our interviews, was about the amount of stress and frequency of its occurring among women and especially among young girls.
