Quick Reads: “The End of Men” by Hanna Rosin

The End of Men: And the Rise of Women

By Hanna Rosin

RIVERHEAD BOOKS

In her 2010 cover story for The Atlantic, journalist Hanna Rosin dropped a bomb: Women, she declared, are taking over. Rather than focus on disparities in child care, pay, and power positions, her follow-up tours Rust Belt towns, where women are becoming the main breadwinners; Wall Street, home to a rising breed of “killer” female traders; and pharmacy schools, where women are poised to dominate a traditionally male career. Backed by workforce stats, her stories forge a convincing case that modern female aptitudes give women the advantage.

This review originally appeared in our September/October issue of Mother Jones.
