Women around the world feel stressed and pressed for time, but women in emerging markets are more stressed than their sisters in developed nations - and Indian women say they are the most stressed of all, according to a survey published on Tuesday.
But while women in emerging markets may be under more pressure, they are also far more hopeful, with most seeing more financial stability and better chances for education for their daughters, according to the survey of 21 developed and emerging nations by global information and analytics firm Nielsen.
An overwhelming 87 percent of Indian women said they felt stressed most of the time, and 82 percent had no time to relax.
Despite being stressed, though, Indian women were also the most likely to spend any extra cash they might happen to have on themselves over the next five years.
Nearly all, 96 percent, anticpated buying clothes, while 77 percent said they would splash out on health and beauty products and 44 percent on home electronics.
"Women across the globe are achieving higher levels of education, joining the workforce in greater numbers and contributing more to the household income," said Susan Whiting, vice chair at Nielsen, in a statement.
"Women tell Nielsen they feel empowered to reach their goals and get what they want, but at the same time, this level of empowerment results in added stress."
