Women Need More Sleep Than Men As Fighting the Patriarchy Is Exhausting

The Sleep Research Center at Loughborough University in Leicestershire, England recently found women need more sleep than men. About 20 more minutes of sleep per night, to be precise.

Why? According to the New York Post, the director of the Sleep Research Center said:

“Women’s brains are wired differently . . . so their sleep need will be slightly greater. Women tend to multi-task – they do lots at once and are flexible – and so they use more of their actual brain than men do... For women, poor sleep is strongly associated with high levels of psychological distress and greater feelings of hostility, depression, and anger. In contrast, these feelings were not associated with the same degree of sleep disruption in men.”
