Manning Up: Kay Hymowitz

Writer Kay Hymonitz will explain why she thinks the rise of powerful women has given men a license to be boys.


Manning Up: Kay Hymowitz

This is a scene from the movie Knocked Up. In it, the lead character -- played by Seth Rogen -- is a fun-loving, hard-partying guy who refuses to think about the future ... right up until he has a one-night-stand and gets a woman pregnant.

A lot of people found the movie pretty funny. Kay Hymowitz, though, found it speaks volumes about a trend she sees as being more disturbing than amusing.

This morning, as part of our project Shift we are looking at what Kay Hymowitz views as a new demographic. She is the author of a new book called Manning Up: How the Rise of Women Has Turned Men into Boys. She's also a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute. Kay Hymowitz was in New York City.
