A Summary of “The Men We Carry in Our Minds”
In the passage “The Men We Carry in Our Minds,” by Scott Russel Sanders he gives the reader views on men and women. He is having tea with a colleague and they discuss how they see men. The way he sees men is very different than the way she. Through his experience, he sees men as hard working and women to be educated. The men would go to work every day and work their fingers to the bone. The jobs they had to do were very vigorous such as mining, farming, working in steel mills, and much more; his father was one of these men. His father worked up to a white-collar job and his body gave up since it was used to the hard work all his life. These men had blue-collar jobs and did not have power unlike the men that the women know. His friend saw men as having power and women having to do all the work around the house. The men had very good jobs such as doctors, accountants, lawyers, and much more. These men had white-collar jobs; they never got their hands dirty. The women hated men for the reason that they wanted to share in the power by holding high positions. The women hated men for this reason. They both have two different views since they come from different backgrounds. At the end, the women do not like him since he is a man and since he is a man he must have power and hold a high position. This shows how judgmental people are. Everyone views things differently.
