Important positions and careers often triggers gender discrimination that led to stress in women - a successful career woman at work certainly has it all, yes high office, full authority, a substantial income, and respect from him. However, recent studies have shown that the success of the company can cause stress for women.

Those who have the ability to fire and lift employees, as well as affect their salaries, significantly experiencing symptoms of depression than women who do not have this power. In short, successful women tend to experience symptoms of depression.

The team of researchers from the University of Texas at Austin track of 1,300 men and 1,500 women who graduated from high school in Wincosin the past 50 years, to survey the population at four different points in their careers.

After calculating the change of life and other factors that may result in a negative impact of mental health, the study authors found that the employment authorities reduce symptoms of depression in men, but instead significantly improve symptoms in women.

One of the researchers, Tetyana Pudrovska an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Texas, Austin, says that women should be conditioned to be more happy.

"Authority work usually considered as desirable because of resource related revenues larger, more prestigious position, flexibility, challenging task, and can adjust the schedule. All that's supposed to improve health," he said.

But women with high positions evaluated with more stringent compared with women without the authority of men work and co-workers. "Women with higher status often considered excessive, and experience gender discrimination and persecution. This is what triggers chronic stress, which could reverse the health benefits of authority that works," said Pudrovska.

Hopefully, this research can raise awareness about the social forces wider culture for women to high office. Similarly, the stereotypes about women's leadership that often cause stress.

"We need to respond to the ancient view that says that women are not fit to lead temperament, or that they are not competent leaders," he said.

Importantly, women should be more concerned with their own health. Women in these positions generally do not have time to exercise, eat healthy, or get enough rest. Spend less time for yourself. And if you feel the signs of depression, such as loss of interest in hobbies or difficulty concentrating, immediately consult a health care professional.
