"Maybe we won’t even be talking about this in the future."
This quote from an article on the topic of equality in the legal profession raises an interesting thought: how long have we been waiting on future change? It surely is commonplace for one generation to hope that the next will be better somehow. Thoughts such as, "Maybe the next generation won't have to deal with _________," seem out of place for Millenials or Gen X'ers, with their bright ideals and unrelenting confidence. However, as a Millenial myself, I find my reaction to this article to be just that: maybe one day it will no longer be news to report the yearly increase of women in positions of power.
