About the film
In the fight for gender equality, we have taken strides toward empowering women, creating equal opportunities, equal pay, and respect in the workplace (still got some work to do there). Women's place in society has changed.
Now, as we continue this fight, we have to educate men for this new reality.

"We have made far more progress making the workforce even, than we have making the home even. And the latter is hurting the former very dramatically."
The New Husband is our vision for a feature film documentary that will lay the groundwork for an important conversation about gender roles in the home.
The topic is vast and there are many facets to cover: our greatest challenge (and goal) will be to create a comprehensive overview of the topic by speaking to a vast audience and gathering a variety of data on the subject.
This conversation needs a starting point.
“a world where half of the households are run by man and half the institutions are run by women is just a better world”
“Nothing quiets a dinner party conversation more quickly than a chance mention at the fact that my wife outearns me”
“Now we know that women can do what man can do, but we don’t know that man can do what women can do”
