2006 Self Made Man: Norah Vincent chooses Female Privilege over Male Privilege

Since I’ve heard incessantly over the last few days that I can’t possibly know anything about the patriarchy or how it feels to be a woman awash in an oppressive Western society, I thought I’d share this video.

It was created by a feminist woman who lived like a man for several months. It documents her experiences. If you don’t watch the entire thing, go to the 17:00 mark and watch her conclusions.

I hope you enjoy it.




  1. Really liked this. I believe what she finds to be true enough, and generally women have no idea what it would be like to be a man. Of course, my age needs to be considered. Everyone should take this opportunity to go “behind the scenes” in another’s shoes.
