International Women's Day - but when is it the man's day?

It's November 19. And one man has set about trying to inform the many taking to social media asking when men will have an international day for themselves.

Comedian Richard Herring is spending the Thursday - International Women's Day - on Twitter as part of a charity fundraiser highlighting the date of International Men's Day to those posing the question.

"Weirdly most of them only seem to care about this on International Women's Day and when November 19th comes along they do nothing," he said in his charity campaign.

He is asking all those not aware of the day's date to make a donation of £19.11 to charity Refuge which helps women and children who have been victims of domestic abuse.

By lunchtime on Thursday, almost £30,000 was raised. You can donate here.
