Women in male-dominated offices undergo high stress

Tue, Aug 25, 2015, 11:46 AM
New York, Aug 25: Most women working in male-dominating occupations are prone to high levels of stress that can trigger poor health in them, a study has found.

Negative workplace social climates encountered by women in male-dominated occupations may be linked to later negative health outcomes for these women, the researchers from Indiana University noticed.

“We find that women are more likely to experience exposure to high levels of interpersonal, workplace stressors,” said Bianca Manago, doctoral student in sociology.

Chronic exposure to social stressors is known to cause vulnerability to disease and mortality through dysregulation of the human body's stress response.

Manago and Cate Taylor, assistant professor of sociology and gender studies, by analysed the levels of stress hormone called cortisol in women in occupations that were made up of 85 percent or more men.
