International Men’s Day 

Introduced by Thomas Oaster on February 7, 1992, the International Men’s Day was officially reviewed by Jerome Teelucksing who chose November 19 to honour his father’s birthday and also because, on the same day in 1989, Trinidad and Tobago's football team had united the country to qualify for the World Cup. Even though it was practised for years in other nations, India witnessed the first International Men’s Day in 2007 and this year’s theme is “Better health for men and boys”. 

The aim of this year’s theme is to spread awareness about mental health among men and the essential measures required to be inculcated in day-to-day life including social, emotional, physical and spiritual. The International Men’s Day is also important to highlight the discrimination against gender and the work still required in the aspect of gender equality that is often impacting the well-being of males across the globe. Males have also been the victims of patriarchy, societal norms, mental health, and suicide which is also the biggest killer of men under the age of 45. 

People on the internet have taken this opportunity of Men's Day to celebrate the men in their lives with all the 'beautiful' things they do and the reason their life is 'as precious for them as women's'. From the homeless people to victims of domestic abuse, and law, men in all phases of life deserve the same recognition as any other gender. Some of the internet users, took on Twitter to motivate men to reject the stereotypes and 'truly express themselves', while others resorted to comparing it with Women's Day.
