    Does the rise of women mean men will never grow up? [​IMG]

    It's a widely-agreed belief that girls mature faster than boys. But a new book claims that an increasing number of men never grow up at all.
    Author Kay S. Hymowitz says that the rise of women at school and in the workplace is fuelling a 'Peter Pan syndrome' in the opposite sex - men who continue to act like teenagers well into adulthood.
    She says that changing sexual hierarchies mean that today's men are uncertain about their social role.

    I guess if men get "Peter pan syndrome" then women most get "old hags syndrome"
