ToDo ToDay: The End of Men
There’s a good reason we’ll never see an end to the battle of the sexes. Talking about it is just too damn fun. Hanna Rosin, senior editor at the Atlantic and co-founder of Slate’s DoubleX blog, stokes this ongoing debate better than most. After she made the case against breastfeeding, she moved onto bigger targets, writing a deeply controversial piece for the magazine called “The End of Men.” In it, she echoes the argument made by Campbell Scott’s character in Roger Dodger, who says that men will eventually be reduced to a life of servitude. Since the Atlantic article ran two years ago, Rosin has developed “The End of Men” into a full-fledged book, which she brings to Sixth & I Historic Synagogue tonight. David Plotz, her husband and the editor of Slate, will interview her. MORE >> (Alan Zilberman)
