Be It Resolved: Men Are Obsolete
Play • 54 min

Since the beginning of human civilization, men have been the dominant sex. But now, for the first time, a host of indicators suggest that women are not only achieving equality with men but are fast emerging as the more successful sex of the species. Critics of the argument that men are in decline argue that the age-old power structures associated with “maleness” remain as entrenched as ever. They say men still retain significant control over the workplace, the family, and society at large. The Munk Debates shares an abridged version of the 2013 debate about gender in the 21st century featuring four female public intellectuals: Hanna Rosin, senior editor at The Atlantic, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Maureen Dowd, world famous academic on gender and culture, Camille Paglia, and Caitlin Moran, author of the global best seller “How to be a Woman”.
