Now as ever, many feminist claims concerning the alleged oppression of women by men at various times and places are unfounded. Now as ever, both biologically and socially, becoming and being a man is in many ways harder than becoming and being a woman. Now as ever, men work longer hours, performing harder, dirtier and more dangerous work than women and suffering proportionally far more industrial accidents. Throughout history it was husbands who supported their wives, not the other way around. And in 9 of 10 households today, this remains the case.
