Now I (Sort Of) Get Why Sommers and Rosin are Opposing Debaters

In Slate, Christina Sommers offers her take on Hanna Rosin's views. It's well written and worth a read, as is Rosin's piece.

More on the 'End of Men'

Smartly written piece in the Independent (the best commentary on the boy troubles continues to come from England) on why young women are outdoing young men. From the piece: I have male friends, too.
