If you find dirty socks and underwear near-to or semi-near the hamper, there is a man nearby. Men like gadgets with lots of fancy shiny black buttons. Men would rather take a bullet than pick up tampons at the grocery store. A woman speaks about 7,000 words a day; a man speaks about 2,000.
International Menís Day (IMD) is an annual international event celebrated on 19 November. Inaugurated in 1992 on 7 February by Prof Thomas Oaster, the project was re-initialised in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. The longest running celebration of International menís day is Malta, where events have occurred since 7 February 1994.
International Menís Day finds support from a variety of individuals and groups in Oceania, the Caribbean, North America, Asia, Europe and Africa. Speaking on behalf of UNESCO, Director of Women and Culture of Peace Ingeborg Breines said of IMD, "This is an excellent idea and would give some gender balance." She added that UNESCO was looking forward to cooperating with the organizers.
The objectives of celebrating an International Menís Day include focusing on menís and boysí health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting male role models. It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care. The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values.
