This one might seem offensive, but it is a thoughtful exploration of both sides of a touchy, controversial issue.
Feminism did a lot to open the professional sphere to women, a world once totally dominated by men.
Considering we as a society are moving from an industrial to informational means of production, this move is perfectly reasonable.
There is, however, something to the tone and vigor of modern feminism that has begun to foment a backlash. "Men's rights activists"(MRA's) are stepping in and arguing that feminism has gone too far and there are now, in fact, many areas of society in which men are the unequivocal losers.
At AMP we acknowledge that there are, indeed differences in the life experiences of men and women, while honoring that each are equally valid experiences.
Playing with and mastering the polarity in that difference is where a lot of the juice in relationship lives.
