What is happening to our boys? Boys are 50% more likely to fail basic proficiency in reading, math and science. Boys are more likely to develop ADHD, and their suicide rates are 6x higher than girls. As rolls are changing, boys are losing their sense of purpose and place in life. Warren Farrell is discussing his book “The Boy Crisis,” trying to bring solutions to these systemic problems.
Dr. Warren Farrell is the author of the just-published The Boy Crisis (with co-author John Gray). It exposes the boy crisis worldwide, as well as the causes and solutions that can be implemented by parents, schools and policy makers.

Warren was a pioneer in the women’s movement as the only man elected three times to the Board of the National Organization for Women in NYC. He is currently Chair of the Coalition to Create a White House Council on Boys and Men, and a pioneer in the men’s movement.
Dr. Farrell’s books contribute to 12 disciplines. A book on couples’ communication, Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say, was a selection of the Book-of-the Month Club. His Father and Child Reunion has inspired many dads to be more involved with their children.
