Comedian raises over $270k telling Twitter users when International Men's Day is

International Women's Day is really threatening for some men

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

Herring spent the day replying to hundreds of tweets from people asking "when is International Men's Day?", informing them it is November 19. But there is one.

As we have reported before, there is an International Men's Day- November 19th- and it does exist to raise awareness for important issues, such as male mental health, toxic masculinity and high suicide rates.

Writing on his JustGiving page, Herring said that most men who ask the question "only seem to care about this on International Women's Day and when November 19th comes along they do nothing".

As is the case every year, it is a day to pay tribute to the female figures in your life and to commemorate the struggles that women have endured to achieve equality throughout history.

Mamata Banerjee declares support for Congress candidate for Rajya Sabha
Later in the day, the state Congress announced the name of Mr Singvi as its candidate from West Bengal. Former Railway Minister Mukul Roy has also resigned from the Rajya Sabha.

SNP politicians Cllr Mags MacLaren & Mhairi Black MP are celebrating International Women's Day today by encouraging women to register to vote.

"You know if there was an International Men's Day we would completely take the piss".

ARMS' Chief Executive, Rochana Sheward, believes that this day is to reflect on the importance of gender equality, to celebrate the successes of women, and to acknowledge the work that is still left to be done.

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. Because in the end it's me who is the main target of this joke, trying to turn back a tide like some King Cnut.

Herring has partnered with the charity Refuge- who support women and children experiencing domestic violence- to raise money for them with an online fundraising page and take action against these victims of domestic violence.
