A Gender Reversal On Career Aspirations?

10 Dec

The Pew Research Center reported in April that young women now top young men in valuing a high-paying career:

“Two-thirds (66%) of young women ages 18 to 34 rate career high on their list of life priorities, compared with 59% of young men. In 1997, 56% of young women and 58% of young men felt the same way.”

This is great, but will there be careers awaiting these women after graduating from college? If not, that pans out to a lot of dissatisfied women.
