International Men’s Day history
Thomas Oaster announced the International Men’s Day on February 7, 1992. In 1999, the incident was recovered by Jerome Teelucksing. He chose to commemorate his father’s birthday on November 19th and celebrate how Trinidad and Tobago’s football team united the country’s efforts to qualify for the World Cup in 1989.
In India, the opening ceremony of this day was organized by the famous Indian men’s rights organization Indian Family on November 19, 2007.
In 1968, an American journalist named John P. Harris wrote an editorial highlighting the lack of balance in the Soviet system, which promoted the International Women’s Workers’ Day but failed to send men. Harris said that although he agreed that there should be a day to celebrate women, this day is a flaw in the communist system.
In the early 1990s, Thomas Oaster, director of the Missouri Center for Men’s Studies, invited organizations in the United States, Australia, and Malta. he arranged small International Men’s Day events in February. Oaster successfully held these events for two years, but his attempts in 1995 were rarely attended. Frustrated, he stopped his plan to continue performing his functions. Australia followed closely, making Malta the only country to continue to celebrate.
Since the revival of Teelucksingh, International Men’s Day has been promoting the positive aspects of male identity, based on the premise that men’s responses to positive role models are more constructive than their responses to negative gender stereotypes. The day is not to compete with International Women’s Day, but to emphasize the importance of men’s physical and mental health and active masculinity.
