Every year, International Men’s Day in the UK is marked by more and more women, men and organisations across the country. During November 2015, there were over 40 events and celebrations including a Parliamentary debate, community events, business and student events, conferences, and exhibitions.

The idea of International Men’s Day is to help more people consider what action we can all take to “Make a Difference” by addressing some of the issues that affect Men and Boys such as:

  • Male victims and survivors of domestic abuse, rape, sexual abuse and exploitation, forced marriage, honour-based abuse, stalking and slavery
  • The high male suicide rate
  • The challenges faced by boys and men at all stages of education including attainment
  • Men’s health, shorter life expectancy and workplace deaths
  • The challenges faced by the most marginalised men and boys in society (for instance, homeless men, boys in care and the high rate of male deaths in custody)
  • The negative portrayal of men, boys and fathers

Methods of commemorating International Men’s Day have included public seminars, conferences, festivals and fundraisers, classroom activities at schools, radio and television programs, Church observances, and peaceful displays and marches.   The manner of observing this annual day is optional; any organizations are welcome to host their own events and any appropriate forums can be used.
