Is It "The End of Men"? Or Do Women Still Have A Long Way to Go?
By Fem2pt0 on September 19, 2012
[Editor’s note: Hanna Rosin’s fascinating new book, “The End of Men” is generating quite a lot of controversy. Based on her articles in The Atlantic, her book argues that women are surpassing men in nearly every sphere--from college to careers to even mastering the hook-up culture. But as Christianne Corbett points out at Fem2pt0, women still haven’t caught up to men in one key area.--Mona]
I guess what’s most troublesome about Rosin’s message is that it suggests that if women succeed in the labor force, that will spell the end of men. Women are far from out-earning men, and it’s much more common for a man to earn more than his wife than the opposite.
I'll be interviewing Rosin this week. If you have any questions you'd like me to ask, let me know.
