    'Ok - so when is International Men's Day then ??' – a question that has triggered all kinds of reactions on social media on a day meant to celebrate women. From annoyance to actual direct responses pointing to November 19, online users are fuming the holiday is somehow "about reassuring men that they also have a day."

    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. 

    With 'International Men's Day' trending on Twitter on March 8, female and not only users were left baffled.
