Tedx: Need for Men’s Rights

Recently in an address in Tedx, the discussion was on Need for Men’s Rights.
The speaker very articulately explains the distinction between economic power and decision making power. He explains this concept with the story of Shantanu. Certain parameters can be used as a barometer to measure the health and quality of living of men in the society.

The presentation used at the address is given below:
