Work-related tweets, texts, e-mails -- even old-fashioned phone calls at home after business hours -- all take their toll on workers these days; but women are adversely affected by them more than men. That's from a recent survey of American workers, conducted by University of Toronto researchers.

Of course some people view communication technologies that help people stay connected to the workplace as brilliant solutions for balancing work and family life. After all, you can leave work early to watch your daughter's soccer game and still take work-related calls from the sidelines. But according to this survey, if you're a woman, you're more likely to feel guilty about it.
