Being a grown-up can be tough, especially for millennial women in America. A new report says things might not be getting better for them, and it’s a bit like what their grandmas and moms faced.
Millennial Women : The Well-being Check
A special list called an index was made to see how well millennial women’s are doing. It looked at important things like money, school, jail, health, politics, and jobs. They checked women around 25 to 34 years old.

The report says that in recent times, some important things for women have gone down instead of up. This is the first time this has happened since the Silent Generation, which is what they called the people born between 1928 and 1945.
