Thirty. The big three-oh. The baby-boom generation ("Don't trust anyone over 30") got there -- and succumbed to the realities of middle-class adulthood. But many women today, looking toward their 30th birthdays, can only see less freedom, less satisfaction, and more work. The result: an epidemic of "late 20s freakout."
