The End of Men: And the Rise of Womenby Hanna Rosin
Synopses & Reviews
A landmark portrait of women, men, and power in a transformed world
Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. But Hanna Rosin was the first to notice that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gaining on men: They have pulled decisively ahead. And the end of men”—the title of Rosins Atlantic cover story on the subject—has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedans feminine mystique,” Simone de Beauvoirs second sex,” Susan Faludis backlash,” and Naomi Wolfs beauty myth” once did.
In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how this new state of affairs is radically shifting the power dynamics between men and women at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up—even kill—has turned the big picture upside down. And in The End of Men she helps us see how, regardless of gender, we can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.
How to thrive in a relationship when youre the richer half
For the top-earning woman, the rules are different. She faces a much higher risk for burnout, infidelity, and divorce. In this highly practical book, financial guru and media star Farnoosh Torabi—a breadwinner herself—presents a bold strategy that not only addresses how income imbalances affect relationships and family dynamics, but also how a woman can best manage (and take advantage of) this unique circumstance—emotionally, socially, and financially.
Among the rules:
Rewrite the Fairy Tale: Come to grips with the new landscape for dating, marriage, and ever after.
Find Your Favorite Position: Stay on top of the finances while allowing your partner to lead.
Dont Settle for a Mr. Mom: The math may conclude its best for him to quit his job to become the primary caregiver, but there's far more to consider.
Dont Make His Life Too Easy: How outsourcing and paying for help can backfire.
With eye-opening stories and a survey of one thousand people, this book will appeal to fans of The End of Men and The Richer Sex. Torabi helps us embrace this new reality and make it work.
