New “Voices of Women” Class at American University, May 7-23! @HannaRosin #hwhtw

When I first met Hanna Rosin, she had just finished telling the TEDWomen audience that “Men are the new ball and chain.”  My post about that talk (and her famous article in the Atlantic Monthly entitled “The End of Men”) was the most-viewed post on this blog in 2011!  There’s no doubt that Hanna knows how to keep things interesting.

Now, she’s taking her talents to the classroom.  This May, Hanna will be  teaching a 3-week class on “Voices of Women” along with American University professor Iris Krasnow.  Knowing Hanna, there won’t be a dull moment…

Hanna Rosin: “Men are the new ball and chain”

Hanna Rosin knows how to court controversy.  She is most (in)famous for her article in the Atlantic Monthly entitled “The End of Men.”  In her TED Talk, she pointed out that women are getting college degrees and Ph.D.s at a faster rate than men, that across America young women are outearning young men, and that the female college students in she interviewed in Kansas envisioned their own future roles as breadwinners with stay-at-home husbands (the source of the “ball-and-chain” comment).  In a nutshell, she says, “the global economy is shifting to make women more successful.”  And, she notes, changes this profound “don’t happen without pain.”

Hanna challenged the crowd to envision not a “glass ceiling” to be shattered but a “high bridge” – scary, but a place where we can all go together.  Men and women.  Doesn’t seem so controversial after all.
