Our boys and men are languishing. Many are deprived of a father at the earliest stages of life, and they often lag in schools and universities. Growing numbers of men have been exiting the workforce since the 60s. This apparent vicious cycle has stripped so many men of purpose and the ability to flourish. What’s more, the boy crisis likely threatens the future of family formation in America and around the world.

Join panelists Christina Hoff Sommers, Henry Olsen, and Nancy Pearcy as they consider the nature and consequences of this crisis, as well as solutions to help alleviate the plight of our boys and men. This is an urgent discussion: We cannot continue to ignore a crisis so significant—and so unjust—as the boy crisis.
