Previously this year we celebrated International Women’s Day 2017, and now we’re celebrating International Men’s Day 2017!
The theme for 2017 is Celebrate Men and Boys. We know that men’s health is worse than women’s in almost every part of the world. Recent World Health Organization (WHO) data shows that, globally, male life expectancy at birth in 2015 was 69 years; for females, it was 74 years. (…)
We also know that in almost all the countries of the world the suicide rate is worse for men than women and averaged out, the rate of suicide for men is up to three times that of women. (…) Most people know that men suffer unfair discrimination in family law in most countries of the world and in western nations men and boys are dropping behind in school and university.
Having said all this we are asking you to Celebrate Men and Boys on the 19 November 2017. This year for International Men’s Day we want to accentuate the positive but in the run up to this day of celebration we encourage you to organize a screening of the Red Pill to draw attention to the many issues that negatively impact on men and boys.
~From International Men’s Day
Just because we’re in a mostly patriarchal society doesn’t mean men have it easy. So today, let’s celebrate the men in our lives! 😀

I love how as a woman, you also choose to celebrate men and boys. ❤
