International Men’s Day (19 November)

International Men’s Day is just three months away. From the associated website:

International Men’s Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated in over 80 countries including the UK  on 19 November. It was inaugurated in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago and has backing from UNESCO.

IMD is a global grassroots movement that invites every man, woman, girl and boy in the world to come together and celebrate men and boys in all their diversity. It gives everyone in the UK who wants to celebrate International Men’s Day the opportunity to help work towards IMD’s shared objectives and its six key pillars which are applied equally to men and boys irrespective of their age, ability, social background, ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, religious belief and relationship status.

This year’s theme “Keeping Men and Boys Safe” can be found here. In 2012, the theme was “Helping men and boys live longer, happier and healthier lives” and in 2011 it was “Giving boys the best possible start to life”.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
