By Alissa de Carbonnel SIMFEROPOL, Ukraine (Reuters) - Russian forces tightened their grip on Crimea on Sunday despite a U.S. warning to Moscow that annexing the southern Ukrainian region would close the door to diplomacy in a tense East-West standoff.

A study in the Work, Employment and Society journal discovered that are paid less, and their jobs are less flexible and more stressful than men's jobs. Researchers say the results disprove the theory that women have voluntarily traded the chance at high-powered jobs in order to gain more flexibility for their responsibilities at home. "The findings show that women lag behind men on most dimensions of job quality," the study's authors said. Men also had more opportunities for promotions, higher salaries, jobs that were more interesting and added job security.
