According to the World Health Organization, women are twice as depressed as men and according to University of Pennsylvania research, women are less happy today than women were 30 years ago. We have more opportunity, more wealth, and more misery.
According to the National Institute of Health, approximately 12 million women in the United States alone experience clinical depression each year, meaning 1 in 8 women will likely develop clinical depression during her lifetime. Furthermore, this discrepancy in depression begins when we're kids. Girls 14-18 experience more depression than boys.
