When it comes to what young women are looking for in their lives, relationships, and health, a new survey finds that most are putting an emphasis on a traditional core value: reliability.
A national online survey of more than 1,000 women, ages 18 to 34 years old, found that 9 out of 10 believe it is very important that they, as well as the people in their lives, are reliable. More than 80 percent of women said their friends and family would say they can always be counted on to be reliable, and just as many reciprocate that trust by seeking their advice about health-related decisions.
"Modern Girls are taking charge of their lives by returning to fundamental values like reliability. They also are more proactive about their health care and seek out accurate information about the health issues that are important to their personal and sexual health," said Jane Buckingham, noted author and television host of The Modern Girl's Guide series.
