Left Handers Day

Left-Handers Day History

On 13th August 1992 the Club launched International Left-Handers Day, an annual event when left-handers everywhere can celebrate their sinistrality and increase public awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed. This event is now celebrated worldwide, and in the U.K. alone there have been more than 20 regional events to mark the day in recent years – including left-v-right sports matches, a left-handed tea party, pubs using left-handed corkscrews where patrons drank and played pub games with the left hand only, and nationwide “Lefty Zones” where left-handers creativity, adaptability and sporting prowess were celebrated, whilst right-handers were encouraged to try out everyday left-handed objects to see just how awkward it can feel using the wrong equipment!

These events have contributed more than anything else to the general awareness of the difficulties and frustrations left-handers experience in everyday life, and have successfully led to improved product design and greater consideration of our needs by the right-handed majority – although there is still a long way to go!!

    There are many other ‘reasons’ why humans face difficulties & frustrations in everyday life!…the ‘advantage’ left handers have is that they learned to do activities left handed AS WELL AS do things right handed! ‘Rightys’ usually do not. Fortunately I had a smart teacher who recognized that the only thing had lefty had to do to write properly was slant the paper the opposite way to the rightys! Otherwise it has been an advantage to be left handed. Our uniqueness is by choice not by chance!
