Watch Jack's TEDWomen talk on The Future of Men Movement here:
FOR THE BETTER
AFTER BEING TOLD ALL THEIR LIVES TO “BE A MAN” AND “MAN UP,” TODAY’S MEN ARE REJECTING MACHO STEREOTYPES, REWIRING THEIR EMOTIONAL LIVES, AND ARE MORE ACTIVELY PARENTING.
However, this new generation of men are often conflicted by their desire to be better & the retained influence of negative patriarchy. The Future of Men explores the roots of patriarchy, explains how to combat its sustained influence, and examines how men and women can work together to create better fathers, sons, husbands, coworkers and relationship partners.

Support Stay-At-Home Dads
Think about how men have been portrayed in TV sitcoms and commercials, as the idiot or buffoon unable to diaper a baby or know which medicine to take for a cold. Or worse, the commercials that honor and glorify misogyny and sexism.
For Gen-Z, these skills are gender neutral, just as being more competitive and assertive, gaining technical competencies, and adapting to change are gender neutral. Companies can rethink talent assessment, motivational, and leadership training tools and programs to embrace, advance and retain their young team members.

Young Men Are Facing a Masculinity Crisis
We are at a historic moment in gender relations. The women’s movement can move ahead with the active support, involvement and encouragement of men, or fall behind as men—especially young men—take up arms behind the quiet, but active, angry men’s movement.
Rebranding The American Man
After centuries of modern workplace domination, men could benefit from taking a page from the women's movement playbook, says Jack Myers.
“Girls rule!" "Girls rock!" "You go, Girl" Great, if you're a girl, but where does that leave the boys? Jack Myers' book, The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century should be required reading for every parent rearing sons.”
“The Future of Men is an incredibly important and timely book.
A game-shifting story.”
“In his groundbreaking book, Jack Myers challenges the existing role models on whom men base their male identity, opening the door to a new conversation about masculinity. It is a must-read.”
