Today, the culture of millennial working moms involve having the freedom and flexibility in an evolving modern setup. Pop Sugar explains that these millennial moms are those born between 1980 and the early 2000s who seek to make a difference in their environment. Reports from the US Census Bureau data reveal that one in five moms is actually a millennial, accounting for almost 90 percent of the 1.5 million new moms in the last year.
