The ManKind Initiative believes that support should be provided to male victims of domestic violence in that all victims of domestic violence and abuse should be catered for. It rejects the gender based approach to the issue used by the government, local authorities and police and instead demonstrates that domestic violence can happen to anyone and is a societal and family problem.
The organisation is committed to challenging harmful gender based domestic violence policies and ensuring help is available to all, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation. It strongly believes men and women should work together to tackle the issue of domestic violence, that gender politics need to be removed from the issue and victims should be treated as individuals.

Famous quotes containing the word objectives:
“Along the journey we commonly forget its goal. Almost every vocation is chosen and entered upon as a means to a purpose but is ultimately continued as a final purpose in itself. Forgetting our objectives is the most frequent stupidity in which we indulge ourselves.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
