Social analyst Jack Myers addresses the lack of direction when it comes to the future of young men — and the need for men to lean in with equality movements, even when the movements aren’t about them. In this acute talk, he discusses the disservices of the patriarchy and the vital need to dismantle the limiting notion of what masculinity is supposed to stand for.

NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube’s comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We’d love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you’d like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.
