Publisher's Synopsis

What Betty Friedan, Simone de Beauvoir, and Naomi Wolf did for feminism, senior editor of The Atlantic Hanna Rosin does for a new generation of women: an explosive new argument for why women are winning the battle of the sexes.

Women are no longer catching up with men. By almost every measure, they are out-performing them.

·Women in Britain hold half the jobs
·Women own over 40% of China's private businesses
·75% of couples in fertility clinics are requesting girls, not boy
·Women will outnumber men in the UK medical profession by 2017
·In 1970, women in the US contributed to 2-6% of the family income. Now it is 42.2%

This is an astonishing time. In a job market that favours people skills and intelligence, women's adaptability and flexibility makes them better suited to the modern world.

In The End of Men, Hanna Rosin reveals how this has come to pass and explains its implications for marriage, sex, children, work, families and society.

Exposing old assumptions and drawing on examples from across the globe, Rosin shows us how we must all adapt to a radically new way of working and living.
