Hi. I’m Hanna Rosin, a writer for the Atlantic and an editor at Slate. I wrote The End of Men because I hate men. I really do. Of course I'm just saying that so that the angry commenters out there won't have to! (Who am I kidding, they're going to say it anyway.) I host Slate’s DoubleX Gabfest with Allison Benedikt and Noreen Malone. We’re doing a live show in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 13 with Slate’s Dear Prudence columnist Emily Yoffe. Please come so my husband (Slate editor David Plotz) doesn’t always get to brag about how many more people come to his show.
I’ve expressed my hatred of breastfeeding Nazis, my love of boxing, and my bafflement at arduinos. I have lots of opinions, but I’m not all that ideological, and my favorite stories I’ve written are the ones with the least bombast. I also wrote a book about Patrick Henry College, a school full of evangelical Christians trained to rule the world (including one former Miss America). I have never been chosen as Miss America or even Miss Delaware.
