Why subscribe to Of Boys and Men?

For up-to-date, relevant, non-partisan and sometimes even fun content about the issues facing boys and men today. There’ll be blogs, charts, links, events, musings, ramblings, rants and the like.

As a Brookings scholar by day, and father to three sons (now all grown), I’ve come to think that this is one of the most important challenges facing our society. We need a positive model of masculinity for a world of gender equality.

This is the subject of my book, Of Boys and Men: Why the Modern Male Is Struggling, Why It Matters, and What to Do about It.
