Got a minute? Help me flesh out a piece I’m working on about the shift in gender success in today’s society where females advance (academically, corporately and generally in leadership roles) while males are not just standing still. On many fronts, they are taking steps backwards.
Without offering support for those claims just now, I’m wondering if you have example of the decline in male numbers, influence or the overall leadership qualities in the schools, professions, organizations and communities where you live and work.
Do you have anecdotal evidence of the failure of boys and men in the part of society that you experience? You’d be more than welcome here to offer possible causes and fixes as well.
I won’t be finishing this essay for another few days, so will hope to hear from at least a few of you to flesh out my thoughts. You can email if you’d prefer.Â fred1st over at google’s mail
