If you're a working woman and you have a husband, did you know you're literally killing him with stress?


Why, I thought, analyze this particular issue, the impact of women's work on men's health? Why not focus, instead, on something more productive, like, for example, solutions on how to reduce the stress of parents in two-parent, dual-income households, instead of trying to discern how women have screwed men? Why not investigate how emotional, social and institutional support for American families could help lessen the stress on families overall, given that the majority of mothers with young children work outside the home in some capacity?
