Most of the time Nick writes on gender and human rights issues outside the US, but not yesterday. Yesterday he addressed an issue I recently blogged on as well, the article in the Atlantic called "The End of Men." Not surprisingly we had a similar take, and that is that we have to stop seeing the ascent of women causing or being correlated with the decent in the position of men. We need to embrace these demographic changes to create the best possible outcomes for all. Nick is not ready to write-off half the population, nor am I. A new and better world will come about through partnerships and shared power. Men and women need to work together supporting, serving and helping one another in the family, in the workplace and in the world at large. The problems we face at the micro and the macro level are big, so it is in maximizing the talents of both genders and all generations that solutions are possible.
Nick, thank you for a great take on this important issue.
