History of International Men’s Day

An American Journalist, John P. Harris, in 1968, wrote an editorial enlightening the lack of balance in the soviet system, promoting an International Day for Women’s for female workers but not succeeded in addressing the counter male part.  He stated that he agreed that there should be a celebration day for women. The day was serving as a flaw in the communist system.

The director of the Missouri Center for Men’s Studies, Thomas Oaster, in the early 1990s, invited the organizations in the US to celebrate International Men’s Day in February. These events were hosted two years successfully by the Oaster but poorly attempted in 1995.

 After being discouraged, he denied the plan for the continuity of the events.  Australia, following the Suit, made Malta a Sole country to celebrate these functions. It was finally decided to celebrate International Men’s Day on 19 November by the Teelucksingh as his father’s birthday and a role model for him.
