This article discusses how depression is now thought to afflict twice as many women as men, particularly physicians and Ph.D.’s far more than women in the general population, and that many of the professional women afflicted with depression come from families with a history of depression. Clayton and coworkers at Washington University tracked down a large group of women physicians and Ph.D.’s in the St.Louis area and did extensive interviews to learn their life histories.
