A few days before we were invited to write this Mother’s Day article, both of us—mother (M.A.) and daughter (L.G.)—walked arm in arm in one of the many marches in January 2017 to underscore women’s rights in the face of the new Trump administration. The sense of intergenerational connection was palpable. Thousands of daughters—millennials and members of generation X—fell in step with their baby-boomer mothers, many of whom had started marching for women’s causes back in the 1960s.
