'Skimpy Equality'

Interesting Lisa Belkin essay in the Times about women dominating campuses academically while acting socially submissive. She focuses on Princeton, however, which like many of the Ivies has a 50-50 gender mix. When campuses go beyond 60-40 is when the gender imbalances drives the social/sexual norm in unhealthy directions.

Update: A rebuttal in Slate.
