Share This Content

Dr. Warren Farrell, the father of the men's movement, addresses why our boys are struggling and what we can do about it. The presentation covers the declining achievement of boys in grade school and post-secondary education, the increase in boy's mental health issues, including suicide and both the victimization and perpetration of violence, and the role of the father-child relationship in either exacerbating or resolving many of these problems.

On November 16, 2012, Dr. Warren Farrell's presentation at the University of Toronto catapulted the cause of men and boys into the national headlines, leading to protest, then to dialogue, and finally to the establishment of thriving Canadian Centre for Men and Families venues across Canada. 6 years later to the day, Dr. Warren Farrell returns to the place where it all began.
