Jack Myers, founder of MediaVillage and the author of the The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century, joins Host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. Jack is a cultural, economics and technology visionary as well as an award-winning documentary film producer. He’s been researching and reporting on the impact of technology and media on society for over forty years.
On the show, Jack shares his inspiration behind his book, The Future of Men, and perspectives on a generation in cultural conflict. He discusses how men are amidst two opposing worlds; there are those rebelling with the stand-up, be tough and adversarial attitude toward the societal shift of women in power. At the same time, there are men actively embracing feminine qualities, showing emotion, and empathy, and collaborating more with women in the workplace and in the home. Jack's research focuses on media shaping perceptions from the beer commercials that objectify women to the TV sitcom male role models (the past vs. the present). His main concern is young men who are not feeling empowered. With no set guide book, they are not getting the direction they need or feeling the motivation to excel. Lastly, Jack shares advice on what men (young and old) can do to better to embrace a shifting culture and society, and how women are also very much a part of the process.
