Why Men Earn More 4 - The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap

Why Men Earn More 4 - The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap

Dr. Warren Farrell’s books are published in over 50 countries, and in 12 languages. They include two award-winning international best-sellers, Why Men Are The Way They Are plus The Myth of Male Power. His most recent is Why Men Earn More: The Startling Truth Behind the Pay Gap--and What Women Can Do About It.


Why Men Earn More helps corporations prevent gender discrimination lawsuits by educating their female employees as to 25 specific ways they can earn more, and the trade-offs each entails. It explains why any lawsuit alleging gender pay discrimination must be certain the gap in pay is not a result of a gap between the genders in their work behavior.


Dr. Farrell’s Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say, a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club, goes beyond dispute resolution—it is a method of developing the type of compassion that prevents the misunderstandings from which disputes emanate. Father and Child Reunion helps working dads understand how they can be successful at both work and home, and helps both sexes consider the trade-offs of a variety of family and work arrangements.

The Financial Times has chosen Dr. Farrell as one of a hundred top “Thought Leaders” in the world, to consult for leading corporate CEOs worldwide (as part of their “Financial Times Knowledge Leadership Dialogue”).


Dr. Farrell has conducted corporate training for executives and employees of corporations such as AT&T, IBM, Toyota, Bell Atlantic, Revlon, Ogilvy-Mather, Hoffman-La Roche, Teledyne-Ryan, Beckmann Labs, Sharp Hospital and Northern Telecom, as well as associations of corporate executives (YPO, TEC, the Australian Institute of Management), and associations of professionals (the American Management Association, the Financial Planning Association, the Psychiatric Institutes of America). His government clients have included NASA, HUD, the US Department of Education, and the US Department of Energy.
Dr. Farrell listens to both sexes: he is the only man in the US to have been elected three times to the Board of Directors of the National Organization for Women in New York City; and he has also served on the boards of three national men’s organizations. He is the only person selected by California Governor Wilson to address both his conferences on women and men. Over a period of 35 years, Warren has formed over 600 women and men's groups. The Chicago Tribune described Warren as "the Gloria Steinem of Men's Liberation." (Warren, though, has more gray hair.)


Warren’s background in male/female issues, combined with his Ph.D. in American government and constitutional law, has led to his doing expert witness work in the sex discrimination and sexual harassment area for the US Air Force and a major oil company (request of confidentiality).
Dr. Farrell has run his own business for more than 35 years. He has taught in the School of Medicine at the University of California in San Diego, as well as at Georgetown University, Rutgers, Brooklyn College, American University, and the California School of Professional Psychology. He has taught in political science, psychology, sociology, women’s studies, and public administration. In 2003 his campaign for Governor of California was a special feature of CNN.


In 1965, President Johnson recognized Warren as one of the nation's outstanding young educators. Warren later served as an assistant to the president of New York University and received NYU's highest honor for his Ph.D. thesis on changing men's roles and behavior in response to women's roles. He is included in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World.


Warren has appeared more than 20 times on CNN (e.g., Larry King Live), and repeatedly on Oprah, the Today Show and Good Morning America. He has also been interviewed by Barbara Walters, Peter Jennings and John Stossel and been the subject of two special features on ABC’s 20/20. He has ruined a few shows by getting co-hosts who are conservative (Pat Buchanan) and liberal to agree!


Warren has been featured repeatedly in The New York Times, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal, as well as in Business Week and Boardroom publications. He is often quoted or featured in Time, Newsweek, and U.S. News and World Report, and been the subject of features in both People and Parade. He has written for publications ranging from the World Book Encyclopedia to Ms and journals of sociology and psychology.


Warren is in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World, but is most comfortable at home. He lives with his wife, Liz, and their two daughters (teenagers!) in Carlsbad, California.
