Since the 1960’s there have been persistent international calls for the creation of an International Men’s Day, and men kept asking: “Why do women have an international celebration and not men?”.
In the early 1990s, for instance, organizations in the United States, Europe, and Australia held small events in February at the invitation of Professor Thomas Oaster who directed the Missouri Center for Men’s Studies at the University of Missouri, Kansas City.
Oaster successfully promoted the event in 1994, but his following attempt, in 1995, was poorly attended, and he ceased plans to continue the event in subsequent years.
In 1999, International Men’s Day he succeeded in making November 19 International Men’s Day.
Note that International Men’s Day is not intended to compete against International Woman’s Day, but is for the purpose of highlighting men’s experiences.
If you are planning to host an event for International Men's Day, make sure you focus on one of the six objectives of IMD instead:Valuing male role models Acknowledging the contribution of men and boys Improving male health Tackling discrimination and disadvantage Fostering positive gender relations Making the world a safer place for everyone
