The End Of Men – The #1 Of The 14 ¾ Biggest Ideas Of The Year (From The Atlantic)

The Atlantic has recently published the 14 ¾ biggest ideas of the year.  Some have business implications.  They are all interesting.
The #1 biggest ideas is The End of Men, written by Hanna Rosin.

Here is the opening paragraph:
Earlier this year, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in U.S. history. Most managers are now women too. And for every two men who get a college degree this year, three women will do the same. For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women? A report on the unprecedented role reversal now under way— and its vast cultural consequences

And here are links to all 14 3/4, plus “more ideas.”  They are pretty quick reads, and quite thought-provoking.  (Sorry about the weird looking table.  All of the links work ok).
