International Men's Day

The identical day, the 19th of November will mark International Men’s Day as it does each year. Increasing awareness of male suicide is one of the primary goals of International Men’s Day. Many charities launch awareness efforts around the occasion, which has been going on for a while. International Men’s Day largely honors the positive contributions that men make to society at large, including their families, communities, and workplaces.

Being in November has special meaning since it is also “November,” a yearly event where men grow mustaches for the full month to raise awareness of health concerns affecting men including testicular cancer and prostate cancer, among other things. Children’s Day is also observed throughout this month.

International Men’s Day History

Director of the Missouri Center for Men’s Studies Thomas Oaster urged groups in the US, Australia, and Malta to hold small International Men’s Day festivities in February in the early 1990s. Easter successfully organized these events for two years, but his 1995 effort had poor attendance. He abandoned his plans to carry out the event out of disappointment. Australia later made the same decision, leaving just Malta to continue the celebrations.

In 1999, University of the West Indies professor Jerome Teelucksingh brought the holiday back to Trinidad and Tobago. Although there existed a day to celebrate fathers, he realized that there was no day to celebrate single men, young boys, or teenagers. Since his father had been such a positive role model for him, Teelucksingh understood the need for strong male role models. His nation came together on November 19, which also happened to be his father’s birthday, to support a regional soccer team’s attempt to make the World Cup.

Instead, then competing with International Women’s Day, fathers may use this day to encourage boys to live lives of values, character, and responsibility.
