Objectives of International Men's Day include a focus on men's and boy's health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. It is an occasion for men to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care while highlighting the discrimination against them.

The theme for 2017 is Celebrate Men and Boys. We know that Men’s health is worse than women’s in almost every part of the world. Recent World Health Organization (WHO) data shows that, globally, male life expectancy at birth in 2015 was 69 years; for females, it was 74 years. Women on a worldwide basis live 5 years longer than men. We know that over 95% of work place fatalities are men and that 99% of combat deaths are men.

We also know that in almost all the countries of the world the suicide rate is worse for men than women and averaged out, the rate of suicide for men is up to three times that of women. In Russia it is 6 men for every 1 women. Most people know that men suffer unfair discrimination in family law in most countries of the world and in western nations men and boys are dropping behind in school and university.

Having said all this we are asking you to Celebrate Men and Boys on the 19 November 2017. This year for International Mens Day we want to accentuate the positive but in the run up to this day of celebration we encourage you to organize a screening of the Red Pill to draw attention to the many issues that negatively impact on men and Boys.
