Each generation in American history has experienced revolutionary changes and monumental events that have shaped our society and country as a whole.
I’ve often wondered: What will be the revolutionary change of my generation?
As sci-fi predicted, the modern world is fast-paced and technologically based. The “traditional” family makes up less than 25 percent of the country due to an increasingly career-focused generation.
Since the repercussions of 9/11, our nation seems to be facing what will one day be known as “The Great Recession.” Perhaps it is this economic decline that has so effectively motivated the children of the 21st century to find success in the workforce.
However, our country may be facing social issues much greater than those of a fiscal nature. Despite the revolutionary path paved in the 60s for women’s rights, women of our generation are still facing the challenge to break down equality barriers - particularly in the workforce.
