Vancouver Writers Fest

47. The Evolution of Man

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents

DAEMON FAIRLESS, RACHEL GIESE, JAMIL JIVANI

Moderator: Minelle Mahtani

The #MeToo campaign and the ever-common occurrences of violence perpetrated by men continue to highlight the damage that outdated ideas of masculinity wreaks on society. Meanwhile, the social and emotional development of boys is hindered by the toxic rules of what it means to be a man. Today, three exceptional authors offer potential antidotes. Rachel Giese explains why gender equality can liberate young men as much as women in Boys: What It Means to Become a Man. Activist and Yale Law graduate Jamil Jivani and former CBC producer Daemon Fairless investigate the root of male violence in their respective books, Why Young Men and Mad Blood Stirring. For those raising and educating boys, and for anyone looking for positive ways forward, this is an urgent conversation for our time.

Also suitable for grades 10-12.
