Greg wanted a Mens Day? They have a day, a week and month!!

I noticed this on my calendar today...I had to wonder if there was a "man's day"?  Now don't say Sunday because the games are on TV, I couldn't care less about sports, so if that's it, I just got hosed.  I want a day!  Happy Woman's Day to you!

TheUncommon Man: In support of International Men's Day

---------- INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY 19th November

The objectives of celebrating an International Men’s Day include improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, producing responsible males and highlighting positive role models.

The annual observance of International Men's Day on November 19th seeks to address problems and challenges facing men. These issues include the involvement of men in domestic violence, drug abuse, fathering, homicides, sports, media, power, sexuality, politics, religion, parenting, war, suicides and family life.

Some of the goals of Men’s Day – to promote unity, resolvedisputes, cultivate greater understanding between men and women, increase tolerance and thus create a safer, better world.

This special day for men was initiated in November 1999 and received an overwhelming response from men's groups in North America, the Caribbean, Asia, Africa and Europe. In public forums, discussion groups and conferences, attempts were made to address and seek
solutions for the problems facing males in today's society.

Individuals, international associations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and religious bodies have been contacted to assist in the observance of this special day.

There is also a need for the regular hosting of international conferences on men to address issues and seek solutions.

Hopefully, in the long-term we can make International Men's Day on November 19th an annual worldwide event with beneficial results. It is hoped that men interested in improving themselves and reforming other males would be part of this ongoing "Men's Revolution" and annually celebrate International Men's Day.

At work, in our communities, schools and religious institutions, there should be dialogue between both sexes for greater understanding and tolerance. Thanks for your support and advice in this endeavour as we strive for gender equality and attempt to remove the negative images and the stigma associated with men in our society.

Yes Nancy, I am happy now...we have a day.  I just hate that there was apparently a good deal of whining to get this day....

Oh well, I'm just happy we have a day now.
