Jul 23, 2014
Dr. Warren Farrell is the author of 7 books on men’s and women’s issues, probably best known for The Myth of Male Power plus Why Men Are The Way They Are. His books create links between self-help and legislative solutions to male-female and family problems such as the disenfranchisement of dads after divorce. He has served on the boards of four national men’s and fathers’ organizations and he is the only man in the US to ever have been elected three times to the Board of Directors of the National Organization for Women. Warren has taught at the university level in five disciplines. He’s been featured on numerous mainstream TV shows and publications. Dr. Farrell is currently the Chair of the Commission to Create a White House Council on Boys to Men. We’ll discuss the myth of male power and question the image of male as oppressor. Just who is the worst treated demographic today? Warren responds to the feminist claim, “we need to level the playing field and have our chance because men have had their day.” We’ll have an interesting conversation about anti-male gender studies courses, how political correctness affects men and discuss the portrayal of men in entertainment, media and education. Also, we question the agenda to feminize males. Later, Warren talks about the harm of boys growing up without their father. He’ll also share his thoughts on male circumcision. At the end, Farrell explains his view of a healthy relationship dynamic between a man and a woman.
