Girls and women have had a lot of attention in the past decade as we move toward a more just and equal society, but what about boys? What about men? The “ideal masculinity” box—in which men can have no vulnerability or weakness, no crying, are absolutely sure of themselves, and always win—is hurting men and boys, and we, as parents, can help to change it.


  1. “Ideal Masculinity” ideas can cripple boys' development & sabotage their success.
  2. Boys are suffering from undiagnosed mental health problems.
  3. What boys need most is emotional education.

Liz Plank is the author of For the Love of Men: A New Vision for Mindful Masculinity and award-winning journalist as well as Executive Producer and host of several critically acclaimed digital series at Vox Media. She regularly appears on MSNBC offering her perspective on national politics, disability and women’s issues.
