Hillary Clinton will become the Democratic nominee this week. Moving forward, whatever happens during the ensuing general election, the fact that she is a woman will be an inextricable part of the narrative.

Clinton has acknowledged the historical significance of becoming the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She has also paid tribute to the women who have come before her, from the suffragettes to Shirley Chisholm.

As the electorate goes under the microscope for clues of what will transpire in November, questions about what Hillary represents to women voters -- and how that connects to current concepts of feminism -- will be on the front burner.

SheKnows Media recently released the results of an online survey titled #TheFWord. Conducted during the period of 12/28/15-1/7/16, it garnered 1,622 responses. The focus was to nail down an understanding of women's relationship to feminism -- how they do or don't identify -- with a look at demographics including age, race, employment, and household income.

The second part of the study dug into the Clinton vs. Trump match-up.

The response breakdown was:

By age:

31 percent Millennial (1985-1998)

43 percent Generation X (1965-1984)
