Boys are in a state of crisis. At least, that's what my guest, Dr. Warren Farrell, argues. And his argument is compelling. Sixty percent of first-year college students are women. Boys are more likely to be suspended from school or labeled ADHD than their female counterparts. Dr. Farrell joins us to talk about the boy crisis and its origins - what he calls the Myth of Male Power, also the title of one of his books.
