According to a new study released by researchers at the University of Toronto mothers are more likely to feel guilt or stress when receiving a text, e-mail or phone call from work during non-working hours than men.
Scott Schieman, a sociology professor and co-author of the study stated ““We found that women are able to juggle their work and family lives just as well as men, but they feel more guilty as a result of being contacted. This guilt seems to be at the heart of their distress.”
“If work intrudes into the home, women may negatively evaluate their family performance,” he noted. Even though, he continued, traditional gender roles are outmoded, women are still largely handling most of the responsibilities at home, even if men and women are working outside of the home.
