People Seem More Interested In Celebrating Men On International Women's Day

International Women's Day Tech

It is likely many Google users were curious if an global day for men existed, given the feminist #MeToo movement sweeping though Hollywood and current culture.

Richard Herring says the on March 8 every year, he finds confused people spending International Women's Day demanding a similar day for males.

To try and stem the tide of internet contrarians, enter Richard Herring, a comedian on a mission: this International Women's Day he will be on Twitter telling everyone who asks the aforementioned dumb question exactly when International Men's Day is. It's on November 19th. 'And trying to achieve equality. These t-shirts have hashtags or slogans on them that are inspired by the whole movement of International Women's Day such as #BeBoldForChange or #ADayWithoutAWoman.

Except there is an International Men's Day, and it's an annual celebration that falls on November 19.

Voting begins in Gorakhpur, Phulpur; Yogi Adityanath confident of 'massive' victory
At 10 a.m on Sunday, the voter turnout in Bihar for one Lok Sabha and two Assembly seats was around 12%. The Gorakhpur seat has been a bastion of Adityanath, who was the MP from the constituency for 18 years.

He wrote: "I thought this year it would be nice if we raised some money.to turn stupid or negative comments by people who don't understand how to Google into something that will be positive and helpful".

He added: "It's really just a bit of fun to point out how unoriginal people are being and also answer the question that they don't expect has an answer". This year he also directed people to his Justgiving page where he was raising money for Refuge, a charity that supports women and children affected by domestic abuse.

It's all thanks to comedian Richard Herring, who managed to secure a huge number of donations for the Refuge charity by trolling sexist men. I can't think of anyone who does more to inform people that this day exists.

Two women are killed every single week in England and Wales by a current or former partner, according to the Office for National Statistics.
