"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. That’s going to affect your salary trajectory for the rest of your life,” she says.
