In the last 60 years, gender roles in the United States have shifted dramatically. Women are now attending and obtaining college degrees at a pace exceeding that of men, and women are the sole or primary breadwinner in 40% of households. How is this shift in gender roles affecting men? With the divorce rate higher among couples in which the woman out-earns her husband, how is it changing relationships and relationship dynamics, and how is it impacting families?
While women have made significant progress over the last several decades, men continue to dominate jobs at the top. Why is this?

With research raising questions about just how satisfying casual hookups really are for women, what are women getting out of it? This and more will be discussed. Come join us!
