STATISTICS:
In newly rich countries such as South Korea or Greece, Generation Y has known nothing but developed world standards of living, while their grandparents often grew up in developing world conditions, causing considerable social changes and inter-generational difficulties as the young reject many traditional ways of life.
Older Americans and Western Europeans are more likely than their grandchildren to have reservations about growing global interconnectedness, to worry that their way of life is threatened, to feel that their culture is superior to others and to support restrictions on immigration.
Feeling Alive
Bettina Salomon
AustriaGALLERYCONVERSATION
We have a lot more choices and possibilities than our great-grandmothers, grandmothers and mothers, who worked very hard to lay 'the foundation of freedom' for us.

We are strong, independent, fun, intelligent, open minded, modern, educated, cultured and emancipated women. We are leading successful lives with developing careers. We are friends, lovers, mothers and wives.
