Happy International Women’s Day

8 March 2023

The International Men’s Day team congratulates the women of the world on the 112th celebration of International Women’s Day, which started in 1911. Two years ago, in 2021 the theme we celebrated for International Men’s Day was: “Better Relations Between Men and Women.” This is still one of our core objectives.

Please make sure you thank and appreciate the women in your life on 8 March by saying,  “Happy International Women’s Day!”

Launched in 1999, and now celebrated in more than 90 countries worldwide, International Men’s Day (IMD) is gaining great momentum. One of the six pillars of International Men’s Day is: “To focus on men’s health and well-being: social, emotional, physical, and spiritual.”  In this light, the theme for IMD 2023 is “Zero Male Suicide”.

While just over 2 in 3 suicides on a worldwide basis are men, let us work together to bring the suicide rate down for both men and women.  We can do this together by observing World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September 2023.

An Australian report titled “Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour in Women — Issues and Prevention” says,

‘Women have higher rates of suicidal behaviour, i.e. ideation, planning and suicide attempts compared to men, and when suicide mortality and morbidity are combined, it has a large impact on public health in Australia and internationally.’

Warwick Marsh, IMD web coordinator, said,

“Men must help women who are so discouraged and depressed that they want to take their own life. We also ask women to do the same for men. Together we can bring hope and healing to the human race. So on 8 March, let us greet everyone with a smile and the words, ‘Happy International Women’s Day.’”

Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, the founder of International Men’s Day, from Trinidad & Tobago, said,

“International Men’s Day has the potential to become the global medium to heal our world. The concept and themes of International Men’s Day are designed to give hope to the depressed, faith to the lonely, comfort to the brokenhearted, transcend barriers, eliminate stereotypes and create a more caring humanity.

I and the team at International Men’s Day believe now is the time to honour our daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, grandmothers and our female friends by wishing them Happy International Women’s Day.”

    I will never forget that it was whilst I was on CD zoom I experienced for the 1st time in my life , that men and women are vastly wonderfully different! I still find my self staring at men who have a beard..,,,hair growing from their face !
    Even after a year on from this experience I am in awe. 👀

    Then as I settled into the psychological and emotional variables I realised that it will take the rest of my life to fully appreciate the difference.
    That said I have always loved and appreciated men. Women really worried me…..long story but so glad that although my life has been complicated one struggle I have been spared is same sex attracted 😂

    Warwick, thank you for honouring the women and girls. I am delighted we can celebrate our true God created differences today.
