Boys to Men: Transforming the Boys Crisis into our Sons’ Opportunities
The Canadian Association for Equality is excited to announce a 3 city tour with the award-winning author of The Myth of Male Power, Why Men Earn More and Why Men Are The Way They Are
Dr. Warren Farrell will speak in Guelph (Nov 14) and Toronto (Nov 16)
Dr. Warren Farrell, a pioneer in bringing balance to the gender dialogue and raise awareness of men’s issues, will discuss timely and critical problems facing today’s boys & men. Enlightening and provocative events on a host of topics you won’t hear anywhere else. Whether you’re a man or a woman, parent or child, you won’t want to miss this!
Talk Description (longer version here): Throughout the industrialized world, our sons are about a quarter century behind our daughters–dropping out of school, preoccupied with video games and video porn, committing suicide, and demonstrating a “failure to launch.” But those are just the symptoms. How deep is the crisis? What are its causes? What paradigm shift is needed to transform the boy crisis into our sons’ opportunities? Dr. Farrell’s presentation will invite the entire audience’s participation.
