For ten years now, the eleventh month of the calendar year has had a new name – Movember. It’s the month when clean shaven men are encouraged to change their daily ritual and grow a moustache.
The concept of Movember, which began in Melbourne in 2003, is now a global phenomenon promoting an increased awareness of men’s health problems generally and, in Australia, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health. Similar campaigns are now held at this time in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Europe, The United States, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand.
