Wish men around you with some motivational Men’s Day quotes. November 19th every year is celebrated as International Men’s Day, to bring emphasis on gender equality and non-discrimination based on gender differences. It encourages us to talk about men’s physical and mental health issues. We typically celebrate this day by appreciating men for their contributions towards society in various fields like education, science and technology, theatre or cinema, arts, philosophy and many more. In the present media structure, men have entered a harsh light, with negative attributes associated towards them. This day serves as a reminder that men aren’t all bad and that women empowerment does not indicate the weakening of men, but rather a platform of equality for all genders.
With more and more awareness about issues faced by men, topics like body dysmorphia (preoccupation with certain bodily aspects which heavily influences self-esteem and their happiness factor), depression and anxiety in men, and the overall mental health issues with men have come to the forefront. Women and men alike are uniting for each other, and promising to have each other’s back. It’s a beautiful situation, with all genders rising up to defend the other and finally realising that there is strength in numbers.
