Does this non-committal relationship strategy occur with women in their 20s even after college?
It is our skills and talents that have created such an influential shift.
Generation Y women are high-achievers, shrewd, well-dressed, and possess an emotional intelligence that far surpasses our male counterparts.
We don’t rule by insecurities or fear, but by knowing ourselves well, and seeking connection with others. We strive to be who we are, in our sexual identities, and in how we construct our personal and professional lives. Our personal and professional lives are blurred more than ever before, and a woman’s strength in today’s society is the fact that we are true to ourselves — more so than any other generation — because past generations fought for our right to do so.
Any college graduate can tell you that your beliefs while you’re in school can drastically change and be completely different after college and once you have been in the real world for a bit.
Do women in their 20s really think that a relationship could hinder their career progression?
