Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. And yet, as journalist Hanna Rosin discovered, that long-held truth is no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, women are no longer merely gaining on men; they have pulled decisively ahead by almost every measure. Already “the end of men” — the phrase Rosin coined — has entered the lexicon as indelibly as Simone de Beauvoir’s “second sex,” Betty Friedan’s “feminine mystique,” Susan Faludi’s “backlash,” and Naomi Wolf’s “beauty myth” have. This landmark, once-in-a-generation book will take its place alongside the works of those authors, forever changing the way we talk about men and women and what happens between them. Rosin reveals how the new world order came to be, and how it is dramatically shifting dynamics in every arena and at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up — even kill — have turned the big picture upside down, not just in the United States but all over the world. And in The End of Men she helps us to see how both men and women can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.

A New York Times bestseller

A 2012 Washington Post Notable Book for Nonfiction

Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. And yet, as journalist Hanna Rosin discovered, that long-held truth is no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, women are no longer merely gaining on men; they have pulled decisively ahead by almost every measure. Already “the end of men” — the phrase Rosin coined — has entered the lexicon as indelibly as Simone de Beauvoir’s “second sex,” Betty Friedan’s “feminine mystique,” Susan Faludi’s “backlash,” and Naomi Wolf’s “beauty myth” have.

This landmark, once-in-a-generation book will take its place alongside the works of those authors, forever changing the way we talk about men and women and what happens between them. Rosin reveals how the new world order came to be, and how it is dramatically shifting dynamics in every arena and at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up — even kill — have turned the big picture upside down, not just in the United States but all over the world. And in The End of Men she helps us to see how both men and women can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rosin is a gifted storyteller with a talent for ferreting out volumes of illustrative data, and she paints a compelling picture of the ways women are ascendant.” Time
“Pinpoints the precise trajectory and velocity of the culture…Rosin’s book, anchored by data and aromatized by anecdotes, concludes that women are gaining the upper hand.” Washington Post
“Makes us see the larger picture…This provocative book is not so much about the end of men but the end of male supremacy…The great strength of Ms. Rosin’s argument is that she shows how these changes in sex, love, ambition, and work have little or nothing to do with hard-wired brain differences or supposed evolutionary destiny. They occur as a result of economic patterns, the unavailability of marriageable men, and a global transformation in the nature of work.” Wall Street Journal
“Ambitious and surprising…[The End of Men is] solidly researched and should interest readers who care about feminist history and how gender issues play out in the culture…A nuanced, sensitively reported account of how cultural and economic forces are challenging traditional gender norms and behavior.” Boston Globe
“A persuasive, research-grounded argument…The most interesting sections in The End of Men show that in the portions of the country where, through culture and money, something like equality between the sexes is being achieved, the differences between them collapse.” Esquire
“Refreshing…Rosin’s book may be the most insightful and readable cultural analysis of the year, bringing together findings from different fields to show that economic shifts and cultural pressures mean that in many ways, men are being left behind…The End of Men is buttressed by numbers, but it’s a fascinating read because it transcends them…Rosin’s genius was to connect these dots in ways no one else has for an unexpected portrait of our moment. The End of Men is not really about a crisis for men; it’s a crisis of American opportunity.” Los Angeles Times
“Especially timely…Rosin has her finger squarely on the pulse of contemporary culture…Fresh and compelling.” USA Today
“[Rosin’s] thorough research and engaging writing style form a solid foundation for a thoughtful dialogue that has only just begun…It’s not the final word on gender roles in the twenty-first century, but it’s a notable starting point for a fascinating conversation.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“Backed by workforce stats, [Rosin’s] stories forge a convincing case that modern female aptitudes give women the advantage.” Mother Jones
“In this bold and inspired dispatch, Rosin upends the common platitudes of contemporary sexual politics with a deeply reported meditation from the unexpected frontiers of our rapidly changing culture.” Katie Roiphe, author of The Morning After and Uncommon Arrangements
The End of Men describes a new paradigm that can, finally, take us beyond ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ in an endless ‘gender war.’ What a relief! Ultimately, Rosin’s vision is both hope-filled and creative, allowing both sexes to become far more authentic: as workers, partners, parents…and people.” Peggy Orenstein, author of Cinderella Ate My Daughter and Schoolgirls
“Heralds the ways current economic and societal power shifts are bringing ‘the age of testosterone’ to a close and the consequences.” Vanity Fair
“A fascinating new book.” New York Times
