The system of patriarchy is not permanent – it was created by people as all systems of oppression are, and therefore it can be transformed by people too. In each Outspoken book we include resources, a list of charities and organisations that can offer advice, support and help to empower you to transform society. That list is reproduced here alongside links to their websites.
