MANNdat versteht sich als unabhängige, überparteiliche Interessenvertretung für männliche Bürger. Wir wollen die Bürgerrechte von Jungen und Männern stärken, bestehende Benachteiligungen bekannt machen und dazu beitragen, sie zu überwinden.
In der folgenden Übersicht zeigen wir auf, wo Jungen und Männer ungerecht behandelt oder benachteiligt werden. Daraus leiten wir konkrete Forderungen an die politisch Verantwortlichen ab. Denn ohne die Stärkung der Rechte von Männern und Jungen kann es keine wirkliche Gleichberechtigung geben.
