My recent research has uncovered why children raised by single dads do better than children raised by single moms; why men now earn less money than women for the same work; why our sons now do worse in school than our daughters... These findings, evolving from thirty years of research in my books, including Father and Child Reunion and Why Men Are The Way They Are (www.warrenfarrell.com), are deemed too politically incorrect for mainstream candidates to discuss. Thus the policy implications are ignored. My M.A. and Ph.D. in Political Science (UCLA; NYU), allow me to link this research to budgetary solutions for California, including ways to save billions of dollars on prisons and child protection with: equal father and mother involvement; universal prenatal care; more male teachers; boy-friendly schools; a men's birth control pill; communication skills; female empowerment rather than victim power. Listening to both sexes led me to three years on the Board of the National Organization for Women in New York City; to expert witness work to keep children of divorce with both parents; and to my addressing both Governor Wilson's Conferences on Fathers, and his Conference on Women. The Financial Times chose me as one of the world's top 100 "Thought Leaders." I've consulted with many Fortune 500 companies, NASA, the US Departments of Energy, Education and HUD, been an assistant to the president of NYU, and run my own business for a quarter century. www.warrenfarrell.com
