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. But 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 only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
