soccer mom

A middle-class suburban woman who spends a significant amount of her time transporting her children to various activities. Originating in the late twentieth century, the term came into widespread use during the 1996 U.S. presidential election, when it was suggested that Democratic candidate Bill Clinton was targeting soccer moms for their votes. Today the term is sometimes used pejoratively, suggesting that such women overschedule their children in multiple activities. California’s Town Crier ran an article by Nicole Miller headed “How Not to Be That Soccer Mom,” warning about the overinvolvement of parents (August 24, 2010).
