Quick Reads: "The End of Men" by Hanna Rosin
Women are taking over, argues Hanna Rosin in this expanded take on her Atlantic cover story of the same name.
By Hanna Rosin
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.
