On November 19 International Men’s Day celebrates worldwide the positive value men bring to the world, their families and communities

One of the six pillars of International Men’s Day is to  improve gender relations and promote gender equality not only for men but for women too

In this light the theme for International Men's day 2021 is “Better relations between men and women.”

It also focuses on celebrating men’s contributions to society, community, family, marriage, child care, and to the environment.

It was first celebrated in 1999 by Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, Professor of History, University of the West Indies in Trinidad and Tobago, to commemorate his father’s birth anniversary.

This day is dedicated to speaking up about men’s wellbeing and health, their sexual struggles and the societal conditioning that they are subjected to.

This day is celebrated all over the world by organising programmes and conferences where issues related to men and boys are talked about, problems are discussed and awareness is created.

The ultimate aim of the international men's day is to promote basic humanitarian values and awareness on men..
