Essay on Hanna Rosin’s article ”The End of Men”

Hanna Rose’s The End of Men is an article with a strong and controversial message: Women are taking over. I find it provocative and controversial because of the fact that men have always been the leading force in the world, until now – according to Hanna Rose.
