Google records show more people searched “International Men’s Day” on Thursday — which is 2018’s International Women’s Day — than they did on the actual day dedicated to celebrating men in November.

“Google searches for ‘International Men’s Day’ are higher on International Women’s Day than they are *on* International Men’s Day,” Upworthy and Good Senior Staff Writer Parker Malloy tweeted Thursday, noting that the spikes on the graph indicate March of each year.

Men have their own annual day of international celebration on Nov. 19, but it seems people are more interested in learning about “International Men’s Day” on the day dedicated to celebrating women’s achievements. It is likely many Google users were curious if an international day for men existed, given the feminist #MeToo movement sweeping though Hollywood and current culture.


“International Men’s Day is a time for many people to reflect on the contributions, sacrifices and progress made by men in society,” according to the holiday’s website.

Parker, who tweeted the surprising Google analytics, also published “Steps You Can Take To Forge Positive Visibility For Women” Thursday to guide women in their efforts to continue accomplishing major feats.

Mattel, the makers of Barbie, launched a line of 17 Barbie dolls Thursday to honor notable, inspirational women’s work. A California McDonald’s flipped its Golden Arches upside down to form a “W” in honor of women and their accomplishments.

“In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Women’s Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants,” McDonald’s Global Chief Diversity Officer Wendy Lewis said, according to Business Insider.
