star this property answer text <p>No one should suffer unfair treatment because of their gender. Every year International Men’s Day offers an opportunity to highlight how outcomes for men and boys can be improved and to talk about some of the important work going on every day across Government to do this.</p><p> </p><p>Gender equality is a top development priority, and a top priority for the UK – but it will not be achieved without engaging men and boys.
