Old White Men. An Attempt at Conciliation

At what point do you become an old white man? And might it be possible to avoid becoming one?

Sophie Passmann belongs to a new generation of young feminists – women who are proud, loud and independent. They want to become CEOs or housewives, have children or careers or both. And they have a bogeyman: the old white man – even though no one ever really told them what exactly the old white man is. One thing is for sure: He has power and doesn’t want to lose it at any cost. But Sophie Passmann wants certainty, not cheap punchlines, so she seeks out powerful men to talk to them about it: “Are you an old white man and, if so, why?” The resulting texts are among the smartest and also funniest you’re likely to find in these parts.
