Warren Thomas Farrell is an American educator, activist and author of seven books on men's and women's issues.

Farrell initially came to prominence in the 1970s as a champion the cause of second wave feminism, and serving on the New York City Board of the National Organization for Women . Although today he is generally considered "the father of the men’s movement", he advocates that “there should be neither a women’s movement blaming men, nor a men’s movement blaming women, but a gender liberation movement freeing both sexes from the rigid roles of the past toward more flexible roles for their future.”

His books cover History, Law, Sociology and Politics ; couples' communication ; Economic and Career issues ; child psychology and child custody ; and teenage to adult psychology and socialization . All of his books are related to men’s and women’s studies, with a forthcoming 2018 publication called The Boy Crisis.
