On November 16, 2012, CAFE invited award-winning author Warren Farrell on a three city Canadian tour.
A pioneer in bringing balance to the gender dialogue and awareness of men’s issues, Warren Farrell discusses the timely and critical problem facing boys & men today. Throughout the industrialized world, our sons are falling behind our daughters, as evidenced by rising school drop out rates, and completed suicide.
"Statistics indicate that boys raised in fatherless families are significantly more likely to experience negative psycho-social outcomes. This includes higher rates of running away, school drop-out, incarceration, substance abuse, and suicide." - Psychology Today (Robert Whitley, June 2017)
These are just the symptoms. How deep is the crisis? What are its causes? What paradigm shift is needed to transform the boys crisis into our sons’ opportunities?
