Help Women in IT sector suffer from mental tension: Study
Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 7 (PTI) Despite glamour and hefty salaries associated with the field, women in the IT industry suffer from physical discomfort and mental tension, even in their plush office environments, a study revealed.

High salaries and social status associated with the IT sector has attracted women to take up these jobs, but many suffer on account of various factors like late working hours, the study conducted by Kerala State Women's Commission said.

The study also covered problems faced by women in various other fields, including nursing in private hospitals.

Covering 150 women in the IT sector and 50 others in allied areas, the study found that long working hours at the desk and job related pressure creates a lot of physical discomfort and mental tension
