International Mens Day: The History

International Mens Day

Calls for an International Men’s Day have been noted since at least the 1960’s when it was reported that “Many men have been agitating privately to make Feb 23 International Men’s Day, the equivalent of March 8, which is International Women’s day” (New York Times, Feb 24 1969).

Since that time there have been persistent international calls for the creation of an IMD, occasionally in the form of rhetorical questions – “Why do women have an international celebration and not men?” and more commonly in the form of statements like “Men’s contributions and concerns deserve a day of recognition in their own right” i.e. not merely by analogy with International Women’s Day.”
