The management of job stress is reviewed in consideration of gender and age. Although these two factors are very important in the management of job stress, it is very difficult to decrease job stress from the point of view of these broad aspects. That there are presence of only a few articles in Japan and overseas describing these two factors in job stress reflects the difficulty. We reviewed articles including large scale but unpublished papers, and found some characteristics of stress according to gender and generation. In this paper we have discussed gender and generation gaps in the stress of life, the gender gap in job stress. We have also reviewed several measures for decreasing job stress in male and female workers on the basis of reviewed articles. We have proposed measures for controlling job stress in each gender and generation. It is essential to study and control job stress taking gender and generation into consideration.
