Are men on the decline? In Hanna Rosin’s new book, The End of Men: And the Rise of Women, she argues that as the world changed, women have adapted along with it, which has worked to their advantage – whereas men, she claims, have failed to adapt, to their detriment.
In this episode, your host, Meghan Murphy speaks with Jennifer Homans, a historian and a distinguished scholar in residence at New York University, who published a review of Rosin’s book in the New York Times.
The second half of the show features a conversation about Rosin's take on 'hookup culture' and women's liberation with J.A. Martino. Martino is a feminist writer and choreographer who focuses on issues of gender performance, economics, and domestic labour. She wrote about Hanna Rosin’s vision of ‘hookup culture’ for Feminist Current recently.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
