Women Without Men
Is the fading dominant male stereotype accurately captured by this summer's films, which exhibit more dynamic gender roles? Are traditional men becoming less relevant to modern families? Caroline Hagood at The Guardian asks whether life has begun to imitate art or is it art imitating life: "Yet, The Kids Are All Right—scheduled for an October release in Britain—marches to a slightly different beat. The real inconvenient truth of our time is not climate change but the confusion that comes with shifting gender roles. Thanks to these sexual category adjustments, we now live in a time when the Atlantic can publish an article entitled 'The End of Men' that charts women's social ascendancy, even as much of the same old sexism is circulating; a time that some label post-feminist, while others say there is still so much work to be done."
