UNANDERRA, AUSTRALIA — International Men’s Day Launched in 1999, and now celebrated in more than 80 countries worldwide, would like to honour and appreciate women. One of the six pillars of International Men’s Day is to improve gender relations and promote gender equality for both men and women. Our theme for IMD 2021 is “Better Relations Between Men and Women.”
Warwick Marsh from Australia, and coordinator for www.internationalmensday.com said, “Our mission this year is to help individuals, families, churches, communities, small business and corporates, including NGOs and Governments work towards better relations between men and women. That’s why we want to say to the women of the world, ‘Happy International Women’s Day.’
“International Men’s Day promotes the need to value manhood and womanhood and help people make practical improvements for positive relationships between the sexes. We must bring an end to the gender war and work toward reconciliation between men and women for the greater good of all.
“The social science research shows that when men, as fathers, are supportive and caring towards the mother of their children, their sons and daughters benefit greatly. https://www.fatherly.com/health-science/science-benefits-of-fatherhood-dads-father-effect
“On the IMD website we provide suggestions on how to celebrate International Men’s Day, and how to get your local community involved, to create a community event and/or special award ceremony.
“Movember is the month dedicated to supporting men’s health. The day following International Men’s Day, 20 November, is International Children’s Day which forms 48 hours of celebration for men, children and the special relationship fathers have with their children.
“We urge you to start planning now to celebrate International Men’s Day on 19 November but first celebrate International Women’s Day on the 8 March 2021.”
Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, founder of International Men’s Day, from Trinidad & Tobago said, “International Men’s Day has the potential to become the global medium to heal our world. The concept and themes of International Men’s Day are designed to give hope to the depressed, faith to the lonely, comfort to the broken-hearted, transcend barriers, eliminate stereotypes and create a more caring humanity.
“I and the team at International Men’s Day encourage you to celebrate International Women’s Day and to wish everyone a happy International Women’s Day on 8 March 2021.”
