The 'end of men'
The 'end of men'Arguing for a new era of matriarchy.
On Wednesday, October 10 at 19:30 GMT:
Women are better adjusted to the post-industrial world, outperforming men at school, work and home. That’s the argument in Hanna Rosin’s controversial book, “The End of Men”. Rosin cites a higher ratio of women obtaining university degrees, higher projected job growth for women-dominated sectors, and an increasing gender preference for girls to support her claim. Her critics counter that women are still battling for basic equality in a male-dominated world. Is it time to move beyond the battle of the sexes or has the war just begun?
