Every year on 19 November, people around the world celebrate International Men’s Day to honour good men and to bring attention to issues affecting men. The day emphasises how males contribute to the betterment of society, local communities, child care, families and the environment. Additionally, it promotes awareness of issues affecting men globally, such as toxic masculinity, mental health, the high rate of male suicides, as well as their overall well-being. Moreover, the celebration raises awareness of gender relations, focuses on advancing gender equality, and makes the promise of building a better, safer world where each and every living being can reach their full potential.
International Men’s Day 2022 Theme
Every year, a new theme is chosen for the International Men’s Day celebration to emphasise a particular topic. The theme for this year’s commemoration is “Helping Men and Boys.”
History of International Men’s Day
Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, founded International Men’s Day in 1999 to mark the birth anniversary of his father. He also urged everyone to use this day to discuss issues that affect boys and men.
Significance of International Men’s Day
International Men’s Day serves as a reminder of the many health issues that men deal with on a daily basis, with a particular emphasis on the rising rate of male suicide. It is extremely uncommon for guys to come out and talk about their mental health, so the day encourages them to do so.
The purpose of honouring International Men’s Day is to inspire men to take action before it becomes late. Young males require adult guidance to help them express their feelings and goals in life without being afraid. The establishment of International Men’s Day is a step to lead the generations to come in the right direction.
