About the Panelists:
Kay S. Hymowitz is the William E. Simon Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal. She writes extensively on childhood, family issues, poverty, and cultural change in America. Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Is Turning Men Into Boys is an essential book for understanding the dramatic changes that are taking place in the lives of young people across the globe. Dudes, guys, geeks, hipsters: Are they men or are they boys? Hymowitz shows why lots of people--especially young women--aren't so sure, and why that matters to all of us.
Barbara Dafoe Whitehead is director of the Templeton Center for Thrift and Generosity at the Institute for American Values. A social historian of the family, Whitehead's book, Why There Are No Good Men Left: The Romantic Plight of Single Women, documents the emergence of a new mating system oriented to short-term relationships rather than to marriage. She explores its effects on young educated women's prolonged and often frustrating search for a mate.
