MEDIA ADVISORY – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PROMINENT ANTHROPOLOGIST LIONEL TIGER TO SPEAK ON THE DECLINE OF MALES

New National “Men’s Issues” Organization to Explore Results of Male Mockery on Disadvantaged Men

TORONTO, ONTARIO — (May 11, 2012) –  Anthropologist Dr. Lionel Tiger will give a talk titled “Male Original Sin: How did men get to be so defective?” and will highlight the decline of male power, on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 7:00pm at the University of Toronto.

The Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE), a new national non-profit focused on “Men’s Issues” is hosting the McGill graduate to discuss the devaluation and mockery of males in popular culture that has become pervasive in our society.

“From TV to classroom seminars, men are increasingly regarded as defective,” said CAFE Spokesperson Bradley Corbett. “The unexplored question is what happens to men who fail to acquire education or family status?”

“Tiger lives up to his name,” said Corbett. “He is as a fierce and powerful orator on controversial topics such as the link between biology and social interaction. He dares to be politically incorrect, tackling provocative, timely and critical social issues that most prefer to avoid.”

The event continues CAFE’s unprecedented Men’s Issues Awareness Campaign, initiated by National Post columnist Barbara Kay’s March lecture on feminism and discrimination against fathers, which drew a powerful backlash.

WHEN: 7:00 p.m., Thursday, March. 17, 2012
WHERE:  Koffler House, Room 108, at 569 Spadina Ave., University of
Toronto
