Couples who live in countries with more gender equality are likely to sleep better, new research has found.

According to a study of more than 14,000 people in 23 European countries, both sexes benefit from better sleep in countries where men take a more active role in childcare and more women have high-powered jobs.

The research was conducted by a team of sociologists at the University of Melbourne, who analysed data from the United Nations’ gender empowerment index and figures on reported sleep quality taken from the European Social Survey.
