Male Global Account Director to Female Senior Producer
why isn't there an International Men's Day? That's obnoxious. We should have one too
On International Women's Day, a number of colleagues (both male and female) wore red to work. One coworker (male) asked me in a one on one meeting what the red was for... "International Women's Day, celebrating women around the world, those who can't take the day off of work are wearing red in solidarity." In a completely serious tone, he asked, "Oh, that's why my girlfriend was wearing red today. But why isn't there an International Men's Day? That's obnoxious. We should have one too." I stared at him for a moment and then walked away. I was shocked and couldn't gather my wits to try and explain.
