On November 19 each year, International Men’s Day is observed to recognize and celebrate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of men. Boys’ and men’s accomplishments and contributions to their families, communities, and unions are also honored on this day.


The history of International Men’s Day began in 1991 and was first celebrated on February 7 by Thomas Oaster. Dr. Jerome Teelucksingh, a history professor at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad Tabago, revived the day in 1999. All of the men in our lives are honored on this day for their contributions to improving society. The day aims to promote men’s well-being and highlight positive male role models.

THEME 2020 – 2022

  • 2020: Better Health for Men and Boys
  • 2021: Better relations between men and women
  • 2022: Helping men and boys


Indian Men’s Advocate Uma Chulla started the celebrations in 2007 in India. This was done with the intention of drawing attention to the shocking abuse that men endure within the nation’s anti-male legal system. Fatty changes in the liver and belly fat, which are becoming increasingly of concern to Indian men, are also discussed. Men’s mental health posters, donations to health-related organizations, and other celebrations are common on this day. It’s a great way to help put an end to gender stereotypes and discrimination. This can contribute to the improvement of a safer and better world where everyone can reach their full potential and contribute to society.
