Equality Armoury: Resources for reformation

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. In our Equality Armoury, 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. The Equality Armoury is 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.

Do you have any resources you believe should be included in our Equality Armoury, or feedback on the list? Contact Rosy.Keane@salvationarmy.org.nz or send us a PM at Salvation Army Women's Ministries' Facebook Page!
