It may have been International Women's Day yesterday - but males across the world have no need to feel left out, as there is a day to celebrate men too.
While the global day of women was originally launched to call for better pay and rights for females, International Men's Day (IMD) is all about promoting awareness of male health, discrimination and gender relations.
Founded in 1998 in Trinidad and Tobago, IMD has gone on to garner support from individuals and social groups across the globe. International Men's Day is celebrated in over 60 countries of the world.
When is International Men's Day?
It will be celebrated on Monday, November 19 2018.
So there you go. There is an International Men's Day. Although people don't seem to care about it unless it's International Women's Day...

What has Richard Herring got to do with it?
The comedian spends International Women's Day telling all the people asking about International Men's Day when exactly it is.
Why do we have International Men's Day?
According to the official website, 'objectives of International Men's Day include a focus on men's and boy's health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting positive male role models.
'It is an occasion for men to celebrate their achievements and contributions - in particular their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care while highlighting the discrimination against them.'
The day coincides with month-long event Movember, which encourages men to grow moustaches to raise awareness of men's health charities.
How should we celebrate it?
The organisers of International Men's Day say the event 'is an opportunity for people everywhere of goodwill to appreciate and celebrate the men in their lives and the contribution they make to society for the greater good of all.
'Methods of commemorating International Men's Day have included public seminars, conferences, festivals and fundraisers, classroom activities at schools, radio and television programs, Church observances, and peaceful displays and marches.'
But if you want a more low-key way of celebrating IMD, perhaps telling a man in your life how much they mean to you will do the trick.
