At Cato Unbound this month, Kay Hymowitz looks at the trends and considers whether men are in decline:
Women today are entering adulthood with more education, more achievements, more property, and, arguably, more money and ambition than their male counterparts. This is a first in human history, and its implications for both sexes are far from simple.
What’s the cause? It could be any number of things: the retreat of manufacturing and the rise of the knowledge economy, pedagogical methods that were really better suited to women all along, and — Hymowitz suggests — the decline of marriage, which motivates men to be high achievers and kicks them in the butt if they fail.
Consider this an open thread, on her essay or any other topic.
