A World Without Men

Barbara Ellen wrote an article for the UK Observer which I believe is meant to be a form of satire. It's an essay on how the world will become without the need for men. She begins by explaining that with new reproductive technologies, men are no longer needed and no one is allowed to have male children - only female. Then men are confined to "man zoos," where they serve as examples of what "women had to put up with" in the past. War has ended, but is replaced by "endless international bitching sessions." In the end Ellen states her belief that this brave new world has not changed for the better, and hopefully by this time built up in the reader a sense of disgust at how people could want to live in such a world - a world without men.Source: The Observer [UK newspaper]
