Yes, you’ve heard the rumors: Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling are teaming up with Steven Spielberg to make the movie version of this year’s indie-hit book. On the other hand, it may all be hype.
Which brings us to Guy’s Guide to Feminism … The Talk because this is exactly how you’ll get co-author Michael Kaufman to your campus or community for an incomparable night of humor, serious conversation, story-telling, and hard-hitting analysis.
Republican presidential wannabee Newt Gingrich says: “I’d pay a million bucks to hear this talk, but then again, that’s what I make for an hour’s consulting fees, so….”
President Obama says: “I’ll veto any suggestions that this isn’t the most informative, thoughtful, and entertaining way you can spend a couple of hours.”
North Korean Beloved and Totally-Supreme Fearless Leader Kim Jong-un says: “You want to see beloved and totally supreme? This talk rocks.”
The rest of us say: Just write firstname.lastname@example.org
But don’t stop there! You can also bring Michael Kimmel to your campus or community for his fantastic lecture that will grip, entertain, and deeply inform:
“Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men”. In 1950, most Americans had completed the transition from adolescence to adulthood by age 21 or so. Today, it’s more likely to be by age 30. It’s a new stage of development, and Kimmel is our tour guide in this presentation based on his best-selling book, GUYLAND. Based on interviews with more than 400 young people across the country, Kimmel offers a glimpse of why so many guys are adrift through their 20s, and offers a road map towards a more conscious adulthood.

In just one generation, age-old ideas about women have been swept aside . . . but what does that have to do with men? Authors Michael Kaufman and Michael Kimmel, two of the worlds leading male advocates of gender equality, believe it has everything to do with them—and that its crucial to educate men about feminism in order for them to fully understand just how important and positive these changes have been for them.
Kaufman and Kimmel address these issues in "The Guys Guide to Feminism." Hip and accessible, it contains nearly a hundred entries—from “Autonomy” to “Zero Tolerance”—written in varying tones (humorous, satirical, irreverent, thoughtful, and serious) and in many forms (“top ten” lists, comics, interviews, mini-stories, and more). Each topic celebrates the ongoing gains that are improving the lives of women and girls—and what that really means for men.
Informal and fun yet substantive and intelligent, "The Guys Guide to Feminism" illustrates how understanding and supporting feminism can help men live richer, fuller, and happier lives
