      A recent study reveals that women employed in healthcare professions experience notably higher levels of stress and burnout compared to men in similar roles. These women face immense pressure to excel both in their professional and personal lives, often leading to detrimental effects such as toxic stress, occupational burnout, depression, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. Female healthcare workers frequently contend with lengthy work hours, multiple shifts, and the challenge of juggling job demands with familial responsibilities like childcare, household chores, and other duties typically shouldered by women.
