So, when’s International Men’s Day?
Philippa Willitts // 10 March 2014
Everybody knows that it wouldn’t be International Women’s Day without at least 8,045 people asking pointedly, “Well, when’s International Men’s Day then?”
Many feminists choose to respond with every other day of the year, while others ignore the tedious and predictable question altogether. However, as Richard Herring found, it is also quite fun to let people know the date of the actual International Men’s Day, November 19th. Several hundred times. At least.
