With International Women's Day being celebrated in China for many years, there has been a call in recent years in China to set up Men's Day on August 3, to mirror the date of International Women's Day on March 8. This suggestion has proven to be a controversial one, with many people for and against it. Furthermore, the application letter to establish August 3 as International Men's Day has been submitted to the UN.
The call to action was first made by Shou Ma, editor-in-chief of China's fashion magazine Cosmopolitan years ago. On talking about why he desires the establishing of a counterpart festival to international Women's Day, Shou Ma explained that he didn't intend to make the application to set up International Men's Day as a kind of liberation movement for men, similar to that of International Women's Day. He just aimed to improve the deteriorating living conditions of men, including Chinese men, through this.Shou Ma said that festivals are usually set up for disadvantaged groups and in his opinion, men are a disadvantaged group in many aspects. The traditional image of men has been displayed as being strong, capable and reliable. "Men should be strong and retreat from being weak and crying like women when they feel sad," said Shou Ma. But now the ever faster pace of work and life have made men feel exhausted and pressured both physically and emotionally. Due to traditional concepts of masculinity, most men are still trying to keep to the traditional gender role of being strong and silent, even when faced with the high pressures of life, and insist on striding forward, sparing no time to care about their health.
Do you agree Shou Ma's opinion that"Men has become the disadvantaged group"?Agree or aganist the establishment of Men's Day?

In fact, International Men's Day is not a new thing. There are festivals called Men's Day in some countries like Russia.Each February 23 annually is Russia's Men's Day, which evolved from 'Army Day'. It's also called 'Defender of the Motherland Day' in Russia.On that day, women send gifts to their boyfriends or husbands and all men can enjoy their day by having a good meal or otherwise treating themselves.In Russia, each man of eligible age has to serve in the army. Since each man would enjoy themselves celebrating Army Day, gradually, Army Day evolved to be a festival for all the men in Russia.
On the Army Day in 2011,president Dmitry Medvedev laid wreaths at martyrs' tomb to recall  martyrs who died in the second world war.
