Absence of Fathers, Radical Feminism, and Identity Politics Are Hurting Our Boys: Dr. Warren Farrell

July 6, 2019 Updated: July 18, 2019

What exactly is “The Boy Crisis,” as described by Dr. Warren Farrell in his recent book on the subject?

How does the lack of a father figure affect young boys?

Is “toxic masculinity” real? And how has Marxist ideology played into Americans’ conceptions of gender roles?

Epoch Times senior editor Jan Jekielek sat down with Dr. Warren Farrell, an American educator and prolific author on men’s and women’s issues. He has the distinction of being the only man in the U.S. to be elected three times to the Board of the National Organization for Women in New York City.

They discuss how growing up without a father in the home affects boys, and how it’s connected with a lack of purpose, mental illness, and a propensity for violence. They also explore Dr. Farrell’s views on the traditional roles of men—breadwinner in peacetime and warrior in wartime—how this has shifted in contemporary society, and the impact of that on America and around the world.
