Dr. Michael Kimmel is one of the world’s leading experts on men and masculinities and founded the Center for the Study of Men and Masculinities at Stony Brook in 2013.
In the world of gender studies, Michael Kimmel is what you might describe as an early adopter. He has spent much of the last forty years calling himself a feminist. But for a good deal of his career as an academic and writer, he has been thinking and exploring the behaviour of men, and believes that feminism can be men’s salvation. In this talk, he explains why we need to rethink the way we educate our boys to prevent them from falling through the cracks.
