International Men's Day & Movember

International Men's Day focuses on improving men's and boy's health, gender relations, gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models. The initiative tackles male suicide, male life expectancy, and violence against men and boys (via).



Movember is a month-long event involving the growing of moustaches in November in order to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as male cancers. Its goal is to "change the face of men's health" (via).
