There is an Epidemic!
Addressing The Masculine Identity Crisis in America
We are facing a crisis in masculine identity. Men are becoming more and more emasculated and disempowered because of our society. The dimensions of this phenomenon affects each of us personally (women and men) as much as it affects our society as a whole.
Being a man in today’s America is neither simple nor straightforward.
Except for the fact that their honor has been under attack, men have largely been ignored. A study by Reach Advisors found that in most major cities the average median income for single, childless women between 22 and 30 was 8 percent higher than that of their male counterparts. Today, 24 percent of wives earn more than their husbands—four times greater than in the 1960s. And the U.S. Census Bureau reports that between 1970 and 2010 the median earnings of men fell 19 percent. While these achievements among women should be recognized, some of those gains for women came at a serious cost to millions of men, not the least of which is the ripple effect that has gone largely overlooked.
what has changed?
Women are now a powerful part of the world workforce. For better or for worse, feminists have been outspoken advocates for this transition, which has offered women a support system to wade through these changes. While women are encouraged to be empowered and independent in the workplace and at home, men are left searching for their place in society, which can lead to devastating effects.
