Since 1988, no fewer than 16 studies have proposed and directly tested the hypothesis that sex differences exist in the experience of work-family conflict (WFC).

This meta-analytic review of sex differences in work-family conflict finds that while women tend to experience more WFC, the magnitude of the sex difference is very small.
