If you were born somewhere between the early 1980s and 1990s you are part of the population group known as Generation Y, or, the Millennials. Basically, we are the result of the baby-boomers making babies.
Millennials were raised on MTV, entitlement, manufactured bands, and don’t really remember life before the internet. For millennial girls, we came into the world post-women’s lib and most of our mothers worked outside the home. By the time we started entering the workforce the glass ceiling was basically shattered. We grew up on Spice Girls and girl power and expect a lot when it comes to careers. This is the first generation where women outnumber men in post-secondary school enrolment.
None of us took Home-Ec unless it was a personal choice. Most of us don’t know how to sew, knit, or crochet but we can open a mean tube of refrigerated cookie dough.
