  Generation gap - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A generation gap is a popular term used to describe wide differences in cultural norms between members of a younger generation and their elders.
In the 1960s the Silent Generation was frequently described as the group filling this role, with the Baby Busters occupying a similarly intermediate position in the more recent Baby Boomer-Generation X feud.
Despite the sharp divides between generations, cross-generational friendships and cross-generational sexual relationships are common.

 The Gender-Generation Gap
In terms of the gender-generation gap, the impact of the second-wave women's movement in the 1960s and 1970s may have influenced the cohort who grew up in the wake of the social revolution caused by feminism.
The younger generation of women, who have been most exposed to the influence of the women's movement, could therefore be expected to prove most liberal/leftwing in their partisan leanings.
The revisionist perspective, generated largely by the emergence of a new gender gap in the United States and Western Europe, suggests that women in the 1990s have realigned towards parties of the left, especially among the younger generation.

 Feminism's Generation Gap- by Stephanie Herman
The parents of Generation X women seemed to warn their daughters en masse that while marriage might or might not be in their futures, even a married woman should be self reliant.
In fact, Generation X is increasingly wary of feminism's refusal to give up the ghost, recognizing that while most of women's battles have been won, habitual feminists are angry as ever.
The young women of Generation X are not interested in taking over the earth, as twentysomethings or in their dotage, and a perpetually angry outlook on the world is no longer considered constructive.

America calls its soldiers who fought in World War II "the greatest generation." They are hymned by Hollywood, celebrated by publishers and politicians, hailed at every turn.
Incorporating the latest techniques for psychological manipulation, new training programs were designed to brutalize the mind and habituate soldiers to the idea of killing automatically, by reflex, without the intervention of any of those "inefficient" scruples displayed by their illustrious predecessors.
And by the time the greatest generation's own children took the field, in Vietnam, the willingness to slaughter was almost total: 95 percent of combat troops there fired with the intent to kill.
