Discussion Three Millennials - How Millennials are Creating a Cultural Shift in Gender Roles Expectations of Millennial Women Breaking Down Gender Roles at Work and at Home By Linda Lowen , About.com Guide The gender revolution is underway, and millennial women (born between 1977 and 1995) are at the forefront. But this revolution won't be fought using old-school feminist tactics like women's encounter groups, protest marches, or bra-burnings (which are the stuff of urban myth and actually never happened.) Change will occur -- and women will experience greater gender equality at work and at home -- because of personal expectations. What makes millennial women different from every other generation preceding them is the expectation that this will happen. It's not a hopeful optimism but a solid 'that's the way it will be' mindset. Writing for BlogHer, Marya Stark explains this emerging millennial view: Millennial women live in a world where they believe they are equal, for the most part believe they are treated as equal, and importantly, they don’t believe being angry about the past gets you anywhere.
