Young Men
For the past few months over a million young women around the world have come together here – discussing what defines their generation. Now it's time to turn to the voices of young men from all over the world talking about the issues and opportunities facing them.

What are the unique challenges and opportunities in today's generation of men that their fathers and grandfathers could not even imagine? How do men experience this age differently than their female partners, friends, and colleagues? As women increasingly enter the workforce, are men taking on more chores in the household? How has dating, mating, and marrying changed for men, when women are experiencing more personal freedom and financial independence? And what does masculinity even mean in an age where choices seem to be limitless, age-old conventions are breaking down fast, and new conventions are invented even faster?

Learn more about the hopes, fears, challenges and opportunities of today’s generation of young adult men. And join the conversation to talk about how our generation of men and women can work together towards more productive and fulfilling partnerships – be they intimate or public.
