Why Our Boys Are Struggling, Reframing Toxic Masculinity & Creating a New Script for Manhood with Richard Reeves The Gabby Reece Show

    • Mental Health

My guest today is British author and Brookings Institute scholar Richard Reeves. Richard's latest book Of Boys and Men explores the reality of what is happening with our men and boys in the education system, workplace and home environment. I wanted to have this conversation with Richard because as a woman who has benefited so much from the women's equality movement and title nine I was curious if it was possible for our society To elevate all of its members simultaneously. I have three daughters, Richard has three sons and our observations of what they experience is almost polar opposite. In so many wonderful ways we have changed the script, the only thing left to do is to figure out how to rewrite the new one for men and boys. I found his book a compelling argument for trying to figure out how exactly we all can do that. Enjoy
