International Men’s Day 2022:- Significance

World Men’s day is celebrated every year just like the World Women’s day is celebrated on March 8. Although Men’s day is not officially recognised by the United Nations despite it is celebrated almost in 80 countries. Everyone talks about the rights of women but very rare people talks about men’s rights. So, this is the day which puts light on these things.

No doubt, men remained superior over women from the ancient period but with the passage of time, things are changing. There are many laws created for women and for their protection which were necessary. But now-a-days, these laws are being used to trap even the decent and honest man. So, these kind of lies and traps should be stopped.

International Men’s Day concerns not only for men but also for women. Promoting gender equality is must. Both men and women are the essential part of the world and without each other, they can’t survive on the earth. Therefore, creating safer and better world is very important and it can be done by creating better relations between men and women.
