Gender Equity Resources

Browse our list of 300+ egalitarian resources to redress the balance of women's personhood and priesthood.

The Salvation Army believes unequivocally in women's right and responsibility to participate as full and equal partners in all areas of church, community and relationship.

The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory's mission statement on Gender Equity is 'Together we will work towards eliminating any barriers of sexism and gender bias across The Salvation Army so all are included, valued and equipped to reach their full potential - as God intended.'

Check out The Salvation Army New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga and Samoa Territory's Gender Equity Committee website here.

In our Gender Equity Resources, we've provided a list of over 300+ resources to arm you in this fight for justice. We want all areas of The Salvation Army to develop safe and holy environments for women and girls to thrive in. Our Gender Equity Resources are a living list to provide another tool in your kete (basket), to help free the captives and proclaim the Good News to all members of our community in Jesus' name! We will be updating and editing this list as time goes on, and would love your input and feedback.
