Hanna Rosin, senior editor at The Atlantic, editor and founder of Slate’s women’s section DoubleX, and author of a new book, The End of Men and the Rise of Women, presented the findings, both statistical and anecdotal, that she uncovered while preparing her book. Ultimately, she laid out her reasons for believing that, although men currently seem unwilling to adjust to new realities that are changing their roles in society, they “may become more flexible as the world around them continues to change.”
