Myth: Millennials Are Not Buying Homes
NAWRB’s article “Millennials and the Homeownership Puzzle” explored whether this generation’s desire for homeownership has mitigated because they are delaying “independent living, marriage and parenthood much later than older generations did.” These three milestones, it continues, “all contribute to homeownership and the desire to own a home.”
Millennial women, especially, are prioritizing their education and careers over marriage and buying a home of their own. Many of them are college students still living at home. Of women living with their families, 56.1 percent are between the ages of 18 and 24. Moreover, women are marrying into their late twenties and older. In 1940, women on average married at 21.5 years of age; today, the average age has increased to 27.

Senate makes it Harder to Sue Financial Institutions
The Senate has rejected a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) bill that would have made it easier for consumers to sue financial institutions in court. Historically, banks and credit card companies have included arbitration clauses in their financial contracts, preventing people from grouping their resources in class-action lawsuits; the Senate’s ruling enables the continuation of this practice.
Breast Cancer Awareness and Early Detection
October is breast cancer awareness month, an international campaign focused on raising awareness of the disease and fundraising for breast cancer research. The importance of early detection and awareness is paramount, as the American Cancer Society affirms that between the late 1980s and 2014, these factors—along with better treatments—led to a drop of 38 percent in women’s probability of dying from breast cancer, meaning that 297,300 fewer breast cancer deaths happened during that period.
