A hot topic in class this semester was, “The End of Men,” and whether or not patriarchy is coming to a slow end. Is it? I would like to think yes, yes it is. Slowly but surely, our patriarchal society is slowing down and realizing its faults. Now, this by no means whatsoever means that men are coming to an “end,” women are just moving closer to equality. Authors Hannah Rosin and Stephanie Coontz discuss this hot topic that we discussed in class, pointing out the ups and downs of this new trend.
Both of the articles above discuss the the rise of women in the working world and the progress we have made. Is it enough? Will patriarchy actually end? Hopefully that is something that both Rosin and Coontz can answer.
