Supermom. The first known use of the term “supermom” was in 1974. By then, the first Boomer women were approaching their 30s. The first GenX girls were in their early teens – their formative years socially. These girls will grow up in a society where the concept of supermom takes root and fundamentally shapes how they see themselves in it. We GenX women carry as a core belief that we can do it all and have it all.
These are the modern women of menopause.
