Lifetime Television is teaming up with the United Nations Development Fund For Women (UNIFEM) this year for their annual End Violence Against Women campaign, now on its seventh year. UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman will be lending a hand with this project, but she’s not the only one providing star power to the campaign. A song dedicated to Debbie Smith, who helped pass anti-rape legislation, and domestic violence survivors called “Anyway” is being released by singer and long-time campaign supporter Martina McBride and campaign messages will be included in Christina Aguilera‘s “Back To Basics” tour, Christina also designed scarves and ties for the effort.

The campaign’s programming centerpiece is “A Life Interrupted,” starring Lea Thompson, which is inspired by the true story of Virginia housewife Debbie Smith, who, working with Lifetime, its viewers, advocacy partners, and bipartisan Members of Congress, helped pass what has been hailed as the most effective piece of anti-rape legislation in U.S. history. A PSA with Debbie Smith and Rep. Carolyn Maloney, the original author of “The Debbie Smith Act,” will air at the end of the film. Premieres on Monday, April 23rd, at 9PM (ET/PT).

I was pleasantly surprised at first to read that Christina was getting involved, and then it turns out her mother had experienced domestic violence herself. It’s great seeing her throw her support behind some really good causes.
