This article reports on Melber and McLaughlin's study of changes in female attitudes toward marriage, employment, and childbearing. Drawing on NLS Mature Women and Young Women data, the researchers find that ''by several key demographic measures, today's young women appear more similar to their grandmothers than to their mothers. They are marrying later (if at all), gaining in educational attainment relative to men, having few children and showing greater willingness to go it on their own. These are all returns to patterns typical of the first half of the 20th century.''
