On November 19 International Men’s Day celebrates worldwide the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities. We highlight positive role models and raise awareness of men’s well-being.
The common response is: men get their turn every day. But really International Men’s Day is about more than a day for celebrating men, just as International Women’s Day is more than just a celebration of the ladies in your life: both are about highlighting, and getting closer to tackling, the systemic issues that let down these genders.
Is society mostly stacked in men’s favour? You bet your ass it is. But that doesn’t mean men don’t have problems and one issue is that men are usually discussed as “men” and not as individuals.
