Women need more sleep in general. The question is whether they are getting it or not, rather than if they need to make any changes.

Women get affected by insomnia symptoms twice as often as men do, and women are still at the higher risk of developing insomnia than men. Female hormones act upon biological processes that regulate either wakefulness or sleep, sometimes changing how many hours of sleep you need at night. Pregnancy also plays an important role in insomnia, with high rates amongst female pregnant patients about sixteen weeks to six months after birth culminating in conditions like postpartum depression which can be devastingly severe and debilitating for mothers if left untreated.
