The 2020 celebration of International Men’s Day is centred around the physical well being of men. The 2020 event is themed “Better health for men and boys”. The theme this year focuses on improvement and enhancement of health and wellbeing of the male population across the world.

International Men’s Day was created February 7 in 1992 by Thomas Oaster, a men’s rights advocate whose major goal was to create an event where the stories of men could be told in their own words rather than being interpreted by others. On November 19, 1999, it was revived by Jerome Teelucksing and had since become an annual ritual for men to feel wanted and valued.

It is an event to celebrate boys’ and men’s achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to six major aspects of humanity to nation, society, community, family,marriage, and childcare. The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values. Here are six quotes to show how important men are to our society.

  • “Every great man is an idol, an oracle of inquiry. Don’t aspire to know the former, but aspire to know the diety in his soul. ― Michael Bassey Johnson
  • “You have to have a bunch of dimensions of yourself. You have to be able to adapt in this world. You can’t be a nice guy living in a world of savages.” – Mike Tyson
  • “The heart of man is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths it has its pearls too” ― Vincent van Gogh,
  • Big jobs usually go to the men who prove their ability to outgrow small ones.” – Theodore Roosevelt
  • “Men too deserve attention. They want to be pampered and taken care of. Men have mood swings and their emotions also run so take care of every man today and always.”

    “You will earn the respect of all men if you begin by earning the respect of yourself- Musonius Rufus
