Guardian: Enough mansplaining the ‘boy crisis’ – sexism still holds back women at work

Who runs the world? Girls!

So Beyoncé decreed, and so it has come to pass – that is, if you read the End of Men, The War Against Boys and recent multiple articles by so-called “data journalists” who have looked at how girls are doing in school … and determined that it’ll be but another generation until men are the downtrodden gender.

If you were one of the many following the kerfluffle over Jill Abramson’s firing at the New York Times and the gender-gap discussion therein – or if you’re simply aware of how institutional sexism operates – you might think it would take just a little bit longer not only to eliminate, but totally reverse, sexism. And you’d be wrong. Just sit down, because some men have something to explain to you.
