Some of the manifestations of social change in the United States include an influx of women into the workplace, same-sex marriage, an increased number of interracial marriages, online dating, and an increase in the number of children born outside of wedlock. These changes may seem challenging now, but with time, may become a norm. For example, what about the extensive use of body ink today? In the 1950s and 1960s, people sporting tattoos on their arms (much less their entire bodies) were stereotyped as “trashy” or “up to no good.” Today, acceptance is widespread, and it is common to see body art.
The list below briefly describes some recent social changes.
Women in the military
Adoption of children by same-sex couples
Females as the family breadwinners
Paternity leave for fathers
Decrease of traditional families
Rising age of first birth
Changing racial populations in the US
