Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men

Wage gap could explain why women are more likely to be anxious and depressed than men | Herstory | Scoop.it
The odds of major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder were markedly greater among women who earned less than their male counterparts, with whom they were matched on education and years of experience, according to new research conducted at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health. Results of the study are online in the journal Social Science & Medicine.

The odds that an American woman was diagnosed with depression in the past year are nearly twice that of men. However, this disparity looks very different when accounting for the wage gap: Among women whose income was lower than their male counterparts, the odds of major depression were nearly 2.5 times higher than men; but among women whose income equaled or exceeded their male counterparts, their odds of depression were no different than men.

Results were similar for generalized anxiety disorder. Overall,

Body Hate On The Internet: Some Coping Skills

Body Hate On The Internet: Some Coping Skills | Herstory | Scoop.it
Every once in a while, a brand new "body hate site" (a page dedicated to cruel commentary and bullying of a specific body demographic — often but not always fat bodies) will pop up in all its blazing glory and, well . . . the understandable horror is contagious.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

A good "do" and "don't" list


Most often body snark is aimed at women; but this is good for men too. (That should go without saying, but if you don't say it, well, more snark ensues.)
