Pat Yourself On The Back Because Our Generation’s Women Are Drinking More Than Ever

Pat Yourself On The Back Because Our Generation's Women Are Drinking More Than Ever

For decades, drinking has been associated with a Mad Men-esque philosophy. While, sure, women have been Xanaxing themselves to make it through the day since the beginning of time, drinking was often reserved for the men. From office bar clients to client dinners to happy hours with the boss, drinking and business have gone hand in hand. Until recently, men were always the primary workers in the household, it also makes sense that they did most of the drinking as well. That is, until now.

Ever since we’ve started leaving the kitchen and trading it in for the break room, millennial women have now officially closed the drinking gap that’s existed between women and men since, well, ever. These results were verified by analyzing the results of not one, not two, but 64 studies tracking gender preferences toward drinking through 2014, and the results are conclusive – we love to drink. Whereas men in the previous generation drank 2.2 times as much as women, that number has fallen down to only 1.1 times as much and has almost evened out completely.

Whether you’re With Her in the polls, the results are in, and you’ll definitely be with her at the bars because we’ve tasted the good stuff (read: wine) and we’re never going back. Career woman or stay-at-home mom, we know we’ll all at least find ourselves back in the kitchen at some point, if only to pull another bottle of Chardonnay out of our wine cooler. So ladies, bottoms up – after the day you’ve had at work, you deserve it.
