The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales has no specific plans to mark International Men's Day 2019, but in the UK Government’s Domestic Abuse Bill we propose to create a statutory definition of domestic abuse that makes clear men can also be victims of this abhorrent crime. International Men’s Day also offers an opportunity to talk about work across Government to highlight how outcomes for men and boys can be improved.
