Join us for a lively overview of the recently published book “Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy”, by acclaimed author Mel Konnor in discussion with Mayree Clark, a successful financial leader and veteran of Wall Street who currently serves on the Advisory Council for the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Standford University. In Women After All, Konner traces the arc of evolution to explain the relationships between women and men, and explores the controversial question of whether men are necessary in the biological destiny of the human race. As our society evolves to become more gender equal, Konnor believes that It will not be the end of men, but it will be the end of male supremacy and a better, wiser world for women and men alike.
