Working moms aren’t the only ones pulling out their hair at the thought of handling long hours at the office, grocery shopping, doing laundry and figuring out how to have some sort of a social life. Single women crave free time, too.

The Wall Street Journal reports it conducted a recent McKinsey & Co. study of 60 companies and found women planning to leave their jobs in the next few years were doing so “to gain more control over their personal schedules and needs,” whether they were mothers or not.
