Edward M. Stephens, MD is an internationally-recognized physician and psychiatrist. He has produced a stream of programs about men, women and families: The Paternal Instinct, Paternal Grief Syndrome, After Divorce: Fathers, Mothers and the Law, and Shattering Fictions and Myths in Divorce. He then turned to the question of The Decline of Males (Tiger) and Why Men Die First (Legato), Why Boys Fail (Tyre) and an intense awareness that men and boys had become “the neglected other half of gender” according to the World Bank. With no
presence of male studies in higher education, and falling prospects globally to the detriment of all, he saw the need to create an educational initiative that would be a-political, rigorous and inclusive. Today, Male Studies, A New Academic Discipline and The Foundation for Male Studies, support these efforts.
