Social changes in women's roles, families, and generational ties

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

There has been much speculation around the aging of the Baby Boom Generation because it was at the forefront of turbulent social changes in women's roles, marriage, and childbearing. This article addresses the ways in which population aging is intertwined with family change, and how intergenerational relations in later life are being transformed by social and demographic changes. Increasing diversity of family types and potentially weaker family ties raise the possibility of challenges to come in the next century.
