Observed on March 8, the International Women's Day is marked by promotion of women's rights, protests over gender discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic abuse and wage gaps. It is all about women and for some it just doesn't sit well.
Social media users took to Twitter to voice their frustration.
Suppose I’ll get fired for asking when International Men’s Day is? #internationalwomensday2018— Jack McLaren (@taekwondocopper) March 8, 2018

With 'International Men's Day' trending on Twitter on March 8, female and not only users were left baffled.
It really is shit that every year, so much of #IWD2018 is about reassuring men that they also have a day. International Men's Day is literally trending. On International Women's Day.— Samantha Shannon (@say_shannon) March 8, 2018
Asking "when's International Men's Day?" on #IWD2018 is a bit like saying "when's my birthday?" instead of "happy birthday" to someone— Jo Hooper (@JoLHooper) March 8, 2018
To all the idiot men, in response to #IWD2018 asking when it's International Men's Day.— Matthew Clark Leach (@LeachJuice) March 8, 2018
Officially, it's November 19th.
Unofficially, it's every other day of the year.
