(Mahwah) – Dr. Andrew Hacker, author of New York Times bestseller Two Nations: Black and White, Separate, Hostile, Unequal, will speak at Ramapo College of New Jersey Thursday, October 17 at 3:30 p.m. in the Sharp Theater. The Growing Gulf Between Women and Men” will be his topic. His talk is open to the public; there is no charge for admission.
In his talk, Hacker will highlight some surprising disparities between the experience and attitudes of women and men.
