"Women Give Up Sleep to Care for Others" - WebMD. 01/06/2011.

Sarah Burgard discusses the potential career ramifications of sleep disparities between men and women. She finds that women in the prime childbearing years, which are also important career-building years, are most affected by the disparity. “That’s when the promotions are happening, when some really important salary building stuff is happening.
