You don’t need an e-reader to read the document, as the major retailers offer excellent software (free to download) so you can read it on PCs, tablets, smartphones etc. We’ve checked the document on Amazon’s software for reading Kindle ebooks on PCs, and were very impressed with it, particularly the ease with which you can access references – there are 284 of them – and then return to your original place.

We are pleased to present our 2015 general election manifesto. It explores 20 areas where the human rights of men and boys are assaulted by the state’s actions and inactions, almost always to privilege women and girls. They are, in broadly chronological order, the following (the human rights of females – including the unborn – are assaulted in three areas, in bold text):

1. Abortion
2. Foetal alcohol syndrome
3. Genital mutilation
4. Fatherlessness, restoring strong families
5. Education
6. Employment
7. Access to children after family breakdowns
8. Domestic violence
9. Sexual abuse
10. Armed Forces veterans’ mental health issues
11. Homelessness
12. Suicide
13. Criminal justice system
14. Paternity fraud
15. Anonymity for suspected sexual offenders
16. Divorce
17. Healthcare
18. Political representation
19. State interference in company director appointments
20. Expectation of retirement years
