According to a recently released study from the U.S. Travel Association’s “Project: Time Off,” America saw its biggest uptick in people taking vacation days in the past 15 years. But there’s a discouraging trend in how many vacation days women take.

Despite the fact that more women than men ranked vacation as “extremely” important to them in the survey, it remains that 48 percent of men used up all of their vacation days in 2016, compared to just 44 percent of women.

Millennial men took off more days than millennial women, which shouldn’t be too shocking, as men of all ages in the survey took more vacation than women of all ages.

But the disparity between millennial men and millennial women is even greater than the disparity in other age groups. Only 44 percent of millennial women take time off compared to 51 percent of men, with the women citing guilt, fear of looking less committed to their job and work martyr habits as the reason. 

“We need to put to rest the fallacy that ‘work ethic’ is equivalent to work martyrdom,” Cait Debaun, director of communications for Project: Time Off, said in a press release. “Not only are employees not getting ahead by sacrificing time off, these habits may also be harming their careers.”
