MJV debuts in The Atlantic with essay on gender, parenting
17 April 2013
HEALDSBURG, Calif. - Matt Villano has debuted in The Atlantic magazine with a personal essay about the intersection of gender and parenting.
The piece, titled, "Do Kids Care If Their Parents Adhere to Traditional Gender Roles?" appeared on the magazine's web site today.
The story took a look at what children think about whether their parents follow traditional gender roles. In it, Villano interviewed his own daughter, as well as a number of experts on the subject of gender in the home.
Essentially, the story was the third part of a conversation about gender roles and child-rearing. In two prior articles, two different authors cited a piece Villano wrote for The New York Times in November 2012. Villano wrote his Atlantic essay as a response to these other Atlantic articles, and to continue the conversation in a different direction.
