Researchers said , women do need sleep than men to function, since women’s brains need more time to recover because they do more multi-tasking during the day. Apparently women who are sleep deprived often suffer from depression & become angry. In contrast, these issues do not affect men who have not had much sleep.

Horne was spoke to the mindsjournal.com. He also said that women tend to mutli-task and hence use more of their brain than men do. He also said that the women can use 20 minutes more sleep.

Edward Suarez, an associate professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and the lead author of the study, says that women who slept for a longer period of time faced lesser psychological distress and feelings of hostility, depression, and anger. “Interestingly, it appears that it’s not so much the overall poor sleep quality that was associated with greater risk, but rather the length of time it takes a person to fall asleep that takes the highest toll,” Suarez says. “Women who reported taking a half an hour or more to fall asleep showed the worst risk profile,” he added.
