The change we want to see

The change we want to see is for women to be given an opportunity to become equal players in issues concerning them and establish an even equal footing by working in partnership with statutory to change the systems that perpetuate inequality in service provision and removing the notion of anybody being ‘hard to reach’ because everyone is reachable if you establish good relationships.
