Women’s day is celebrated with much zeal all around the world but most people don’t even know about International Men’s Day.
While it is essential to show our love and appreciation to the women in our lives, it is equally important to appreciate the men in our lives, be it a father, a husband, a brother or a friend.
The International Men’s Day is celebrated on November 19 every year.
After demanding an International Men’s Day for years, it was finally established by Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh in 1999. The date, 19 November, was chosen to honor the birthday of Teelucksingh’s father.
Improving men’s health, improving gender relations, highlight the positive role of male models and promoting gender equality are a few of the objects of celebrating this special day.
The theme for this year’s International Men’s Day is “Making a Difference for Men and Boys”.
This Men’s Day, let’s take out some time to thank all the men in our lives for their unconditional love and support.
