Clementine Ford’s Boys Will Be Boys is an acclaimed call to action against a culture of entitlement, privilege and power. SBS’s Janice Petersen talks to Clementine and writer and chef Adam Liaw about the harm toxic masculinity inflicts on women and men, the progress we’re making to counteract it, and how we can raise our boys to become better men.
