avon-rw.jpgReese Witherspoon is speaking out to empower women. She joins other celebrity celebrity dignitaries like George Clooney and Angelina Jolie as she showed up at the United Nations to speak about domestic violence globally.  As honorary chairperson of the Avon Foundation, Witherspoon was on hand to recognize the new partnership between Avon and the United Nations Development Fund for Women [UNIFEM], in their efforts to end domestic violence.  The partnership announcement was part of the Global Summit for a Better Tomorrow held at the United Nations in celebration of International Women’s Day, which will be recognized globally on March 8, 2008. According to sources:

Ahead of International Women’s Day this weekend, Avon CEO Andrea Jung announced the partnership between her company and UNIFEM, in which the Avon Foundation will match the first $500,000 in sales of a “Women’s Empowering Bracelet” for the U.N. Trust to End Violence Against Women.

The “infinity” shape bracelet symbolizes a never-ending commitment to ending domestic violence and can be purchased for $3 at Avon.com. Witherspoon certainly is a role model when it comes to women’s empowerment in her role as Avon Ambassador, actress, and mother.  Power to the Women!
