International Men’s Day is celebrated annually on 19 November. It was first established in the United States in 1992, by an academic in Kansas. In the UK, the day is organised by the Men and Boys Coalition and is normally the subject of a debate in the House of Commons.

During the debate last year, on 19 November 2020, Members drew attention to a range of issues, including men’s mental health, rough sleeping, take up of shared parental leave and male victims of violence. The themes for this year’s International Men’s Day are similar, and set out on the UK Men’s Day website. They include a consideration of the high male suicide rate; men’s health; male experience of parenting; and male survivors of abuse. These themes are also reflected in the first report of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Men & Boys, chaired by the Member sponsoring the debate.

This debate pack provides an analysis of male educational attainment; the labour market; men’s health; families and parenting; crime and rough sleeping.
