Richard Herring spent International Women’s Day brilliantly trolling angry men on Twitter

But - sigh - not everyone out there agrees with us, and there's one initiative in particular that seems to bring the knuckle-draggers out from their caves: International Women's Day.

Apparently the other 364 days of the year being heavily-biased towards men (pay, opportunity and all the rest) isn't enough and, like clockwork, they will all ask, "but what about an International Men's Day"?

Richard Herring: a hero of equality for our time.
