Date: Thursday, March 30, 2017 / Time: 3:00pm - 5:00pm

Provider, guardian, hero – cultural changes have been loosening these narrow roles for men, right? Maybe not as much as we think. New research on attitudes in the United States, United Kingdom, and Mexico finds most men still feeling pushed to live in the ‘Man Box,’ a rigid construct of cultural ideas about male identity. USIP and the authors, partners, and sponsors of this research hosted a discussion on March 30 to discuss what these findings mean for men, women, and the prospects for peaceful societies.
