“We live in societies where men have power and privilege. They still dominate in politics, corporate America, media. It means that men have got to share. We have had this 8,000 year affirmative action program for men, it can’t go on any longer so that is an obstacle in the sense that established institutions and beliefs that we are up against, said Author, Dr. Michael Kaufman,
