Do you find that some men are too intimidated by your success, and career ambitions? Maybe these aren’t the kind of men you should be dating anyway.
Reporting in South Texas, I interviewed Magdalena Hinojosa, a senior associate vice president at the University of Texas-Pan American. I had set up the interview hoping to get her expert views about why Hispanic women are emerging as more successful students than men. Hinojosa was glad to talk; she said that part of the disparity does spring from the fact that young men see themselves as providers. They usually need to get jobs, which reduces the time they have to study. And even when they are supporting parents and extended families-as so many men in the region are-their income reduces the grant money they can qualify for.
