Alternate title:Women & men in a new millennium
Michael Kimmel on gender
Summary:We've heard again and again that men and women are engaged in a 'battle of the sexes,' that we're so differently wired and so foreign to each other that we might as well come from different planets. In this powerful new lecture, renowned speaker and best selling author Michael Kimmel ... turns this conventional wisdom on its head. With clarity and humor, Kimmel moves beyond the popular inter-planetary notion that 'men are from Mars and women are from Venus' to advance a decidedly more Earth-bound and interconnected view of the things men and women have in common.
