In 'Boy Crisis,' authors identify four difficulties boys face today

Article here. Excerpt:

'In the May 2000 issue of the Atlantic, Christina Hoff Sommers wrote an article titled “The War Against Boys” and its opening sentence was, “It is a bad time to be a boy in America.”

In 2018, Warren Farrell and John Gray authored “The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys are Struggling and What Can We Do About It?” Its opening quote by the leader of the New Zealand Labour Party is, “I am sorry for being a man.” It seems as though in the 18-year interval, things have gone from bad to worse for boys.

A review of “The Boy Crisis” needs a summary of Sommers’ article on how this crisis came to exist in order to place this book in perspective. She questioned the assumptions about educational inequality that many held — that schools favor boys and grind down girls. But the truth was exactly the opposite; by virtually every measure in 2000, as well as now, girls thrive in school and boys struggle.'
