8:36 am
good morning to both of you. jack, good morning. >> good morning. >> how did you come to that conclusion. >> it's generational. statistically young men are defying gender norms. they're underit indicated, they're being outlearned by women, being outeducated, economically outperformed by women, the jobs that are being created now in the workplace are requiring college ed indication, only 40% of college degrees are going to men versus 60% going to women, which is a flup of where we were in the 1970s. economically under 30, single unmarried women are outearning single unmarried childless men under 30 by almost 20%. >> so how does that -- >> it's a generational flip. >> right. how d us that change our concept of masculinity? >> these young men are not their fathers or grand faers.
8:37 am
more and more in fatherless home, growing up in homes where the woman is outearning her husband where they're both working. they're not just defying traditional gender norms, they're not learning traditional gender norm, but yet when they come into the work-force, their adult years, these traditional gender norms are kind of being imposed on them. >> jodi, what do you see? >> really we see the gender rolls o r converging more in society, whether you look at women taking combat positions in home. almost nobody is living out the gender script or marriage script that their parents did and w stay-at-home dad whose wife made a lot of money. he confessed to me, i'd like to buy my wife a piece of jewelry but i can't figure out to spend because she's the one who makes the money. people are trying to figure out
8:38 am
>> and that stay-at-home dad when he goes to the party or an events with his wife, the first question asked is what do you do and that's the a greatest fear because they're not being supported. they don't have the support group, the 60 years of support that the women's movement has had. we're starting a whole new generation that doesn't get the kind of support they need to help them as we're moving into this new world as they're moving into a world where two-thirds of all the -- >> isn't that how women have felt for so long, that we haven't gotten the support we need? >> women have had three periods of women's movements. you back 60 years and you have support groups being formed. almost every corporation has a women's group, there are no men's groups. churches, local organizations, community groups, they're not supporting men the way they're supporting women and men are not
8:39 am
>> the numbers, women are in this. if you look at the top ceo list, fine. 30. what i focus on in the book is our sons and the trends that we're seeing and the patterns we're seeing and what our sons are coming into in terms of the opportunity they have. they're not -- they're underis indicated. they're more likely boys in high school. they're -- 50% more likely to be failing math, science, and reading. they're less likely to get into the colleges because economically a college degree doesn't mean as much to them. they only earn 10% more in a lifetime with a college degree.
8:40 am
and more how women are becoming an important force. how does society sort all this out? >> some of this i think is experienced as very welcome. for instance when i interviewed younger men, some have been grateful and happy to have the expectation of having a spouse who will learn. when you look at the fact that a private school college education costs $250,000 now, there are a lot of younger men who don't want to assume the burden of providing solely. but i think soledad is right to point out that ta barriers for women are especially stub board in many cases and so we've got this sort of complex duo situation but it often ends up feeling less like men are dominant or women are dominant but that people are sharing the anxiety of earning money and raising a family more easily than ever before. >> is the flip side of anxiety the opportunity to spend time with your children?
8:41 am
zucker berd who takes a paternity leave. i don't know that there's a lot of bhoen do that. >> i do acknowledge in my book that even where both parents are working, women and even where the woman is outearning the men in 50% of the homes women are still doing more housework and doing more child carry. that's changing with younger generations, but we really need to support the men and create a better dynamic and a better narrative, especially in media and advertising which portrays men often acid yachts and buffoons. we really in advertising often portray men as not able to change the baby's diaper or pick out their own analgesic. we need to change the nair tish around young men and we need to create a better sense of a man's role in the relationship and help him understand. 85% of all heterosexual relations that end are ended by the woman.

thank you very much. the book's called "the future of men." it goes on sale today. a woman offers one of her kidneys to a stranger after seeing a facebook post. >> why did you up want to do it? >> it literally boils down to the fact that it's the right thing to do and this is the right thing to do. >> ahead we'll show you the first meeting with the transplant patient and the unconventional method that put more fun in your day

8:49 am
the moment that i knew i was a match, i knew this would happen. >> how about a toast. >> yes. >> for deming, it's a chance to experience life on her own terms. >> what are you going to do with all that free time? >> i don't know. i'm just going to live my life. >> if all goes well, both women should be out of the hospital by the end of the week. and both say they're going to continue to raise awareness for living donors. right now they account for a third of all kidney transplants baptism the way, amber is not just giving her kidney. she gave her a gift last night. a banana. it may seem strange but she said one of the first things she wants to do is eat a banana, something she hasn't been able to enjoy in years. day >> what a wonderful gift. >> what an amazing gift,
