Apparently today is International Men’s Day,
Think back to International Women’s Days when from Facebook and Instagram you KNEW it was International Women’s Day because EVERYONE had something to post.
I wrote a blog post that day about needing a day to acknowledge women specifically because as a gender we are still marginalised in many ways in society. Essentially you could argue the other 364 days of the year are International Men’s Day.
But I think the article below articulates well, why celebrating men is also important in removing gender stereo types and bias.
Sometimes it’s good when you read something to consider your own opinions and their validity and this article made me do just that.
