“Generation X girls grew up believing that we had the same opportunities as our brothers, and, for the most part, this was true. The college graduation rate for Gen X women is almost twice the rate for baby boomer women. And more than half of the bachelor’s and master’s degrees conferred in this country are now granted to women.
“Mothers, however, are a different story. No matter our level of education, we accept underemployment so that we can take the kids to the doctor or run them to soccer practice. We take jobs where we won’t have to travel so that we can be home to help our kids with homework and to watch their games. It’s not glamorous, but it needs to be done.”
Are you a working mom, be you Silent, Boomer, Gen X or Gen Y? Did or does guilt grip you?
