男性大脑和女权主义

纽约——我这一代北美人是听着20世纪70年代“自由自在…表现真我”的儿童唱片长大的,在这张唱片中,伟大的前足球巨星格里尔唱道“哭吧没关系”。这就是说:女孩可以坚强,而男孩不坚强也没有关系。

近40年来,那个年代西方女权主义批评在性别角色领域的僵化成见一直占统治地位。在很多方面,它侵蚀甚至是消灭了那种把温和的男孩变成有侵略性的男人、并让有抱负的女孩深陷低薪工作而无法自拔的强迫性限制。

女权主义者一直不愿承认挑战这类性别角色批评的科学依据,这一点是可以理解的。毕竟,由于有关性别差异的生物依据在过去一直被用来解释女性的从属地位,女性也因此不愿承认任何先天的差异,唯恐这会被当成对她们不利的证据。不过,鉴于最新得出的科学结论,女权主义者拒绝承认任何天生性别差异的存在是否只能创造出新的偏见?

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
