Australian Womens Network (AWN) will be celebrating International Men’s Day 2017 (IMD), which has the potential to become the global medium to heal our world. The concept and themes of IMD are designed to give hope to the depressed, faith to the lonely, comfort to the broken-hearted, transcend barriers, eliminate stereotypes and create a more caring, humane society. Our aim of IMD is to promote goodwill and positively transform the lives of many. We genuinely believe that the observance of IMD has resulted in greater stability in the lives of men and has guided them from darkness into light.
Our objective is to celebrate IMD and focus on men’s and boy’s health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality and highlighting male role models. It will also celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular their contribution to community, family, marriage and child care.
