International Conference on Men's Issues
The International Conference on Men's Issues (ICMI) are a series of conferences organised by MRAs and held around the world to discuss issues facing men and boys. The inaugural conference was held in 2014, and has been held annually since, with the exception of 2015 & 2022.
While the conferences are run by MRAs, presenters are drawn from a wide pool and have included politicians and other public figures. The conferences tend to focus on men's issues rather than anti-feminism.
To date, all ICMI conferences have been held in the United States, United Kingdom or Australia. The 2023 conference will be held in Pune, India.
