Advocating for Gender Equality

In Australia, The Salvation Army has formed a new role to address gender inequalties within the organization.

Gen Peterson acknowledges that inequities exist in the community at-large but that organic change in shifting values simply isn’t happening fast enough.  However, through address potential inequities at an organizational level, perhaps that will propel change in the wider community.  “I hope that The Salvation Army would closely resemble the Triune God we serve. Just as the three persons of God are perfectly united, co-equal and undivided in essence, we, too, want to be a movement that represents this perfect unity and harmony. But the systems and structures within our organisation have allowed inequality to creep in.”
