Healthy sleep can be especially elusive for women, and the barriers that they face in maintaining good sleep health are often misunderstood or overlooked. In October 2013, SWHR convened an interdisciplinary scientific roundtable focused on understanding the role of sex and gender differences in sleep and the state of women’s sleep health research. The roundtable included 15 well-established sleep researchers and clinicians from diverse backgrounds, and SWHR summarized the expert discussions in this peer-reviewed report, Exploring Sex and Gender Differences in Sleep Health, published in July 2014 in the Journal of Women’s Health. This roundtable laid the foundation for SWHR’s Sleep Network and its resource Women & Sleep: A Guide for Better Health.
