Abstract

[They seem to have it all: career, family, friends, and the time and space to enjoy all of these. So why are so many Gen X women today dissatisfied? Some of the reasons parallel those of their male counterparts, including the idea that having too many choices isn’t always a good thing. Other reasons, rooted in biology and historical gender roles, are more specific to women. The complication, of course, is that Gen X females facing today’s challenges often have to deal with their parents who, as illustrated in the Battle of the Super-Women chapter, may hold different expectations about what women can—and can’t—do. This chapter will help Gen X women and those around them gain perspective on the challenges they face and embrace personal and professional lives that are both full and satisfying.]
