21 Oct Reader Poll: What is the main reason why women now surpass men in college degrees by almost three to two?
“What is the main reason why women now surpass men in college degrees by almost three to two?”
Here’s how they responded:
11 Percent Changes in modern labor (from “backs to brains”)
40 Percent Feminism has drastically altered societal norms
34 Percent an anti-male bias in academia
15 Percent I don’t know. Tell me!
This is a question that we are quick to say, we’re not sure of the answer. It would seem that feminism is the primary culprit, but it is also clear that in terms of the employment market, feminism would not have been so successful in altering gender roles were it not for the switch to more of a “brains” market.
It is well documented that there is an anti-male bias in academia in the western world– once again fed by radical feminism. We at United Families can also tell you that there is an extreme anti-male bias within the UN system and that programs that are being rolled out to the developing world include that anti-male bias.
This is something that absolutely needs attention before things get further off kilter. As parents we should be highly aware and making sure that our young boys and young men are getting what they need to grow up in a world that increasingly seems to marginalize them.
