Aims and objectives
Confederation of organisations working across the country with boys, fathers and men. It is open to social actors from the worlds of politics, economics, social work, churches, religious communities, law, science and other areas. Members of the forum are committed to gender equality as a fundamental principle of their joint work. The forum is committed to solidarity between men and boys and women and girls. The objective is to overcome constricting structures and dominant masculinity and role models.

Based on these positions, the federal forum calls on men to build a comprehensive alliance for sustainable relationships and structures in our society, to improve quality of life for everyone.
