Staying Put is a domestic and sexual abuse charity. Its purpose is to challenge violence and abuse wherever and whenever we see it and it's working towards having a world free of abuse. Its leadership is, and always will be predominantly women-led. Its work is structured to empower women who have faced abuse and violence, to help them thrive and achieve their full potential. Domestic abuse and sexual violence can affect any gender, but it disproportionately effects women and girls. Domestic abuse is a gendered issue. It practices intersectional feminism. Intersectionality is the concept that all oppression is linked. The charity recognise how other forms oppression due to class, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disability, can overlap with and exacerbate gender discrimination.
