Marriage and progeny. Mortgage and promotion. Wife, Mother, Girl Boss. These were the hallmarks of capital-S Success all millennial women had siphoned into their psyche: a series of badges, identity labels and tick boxes that most of us could only hope to attain. In a post-second-wave feminism world, we’re promised we can “Have It All” but what if what you want is actually… none of it?
