Witherspoon said, “Although the problem may seem insurmountable, there are ways for women and men everywhere to help bring an end to violence against women across the globe. The Avon Empowerment Bracelet is a simple, but powerful, way to raise funds to reduce violence against women. As a woman and as a mother, I urge you to join me on this very special anniversary of International Women’s Day to end this epidemic by wearing and giving the bracelet to friends and family.”
So far, Avon has raised more than 30 million dollars in over 50 countries to help fight violence against women.
Other women and men are speaking out in time for International Women’s Day. Yesterday Dame Judi Dench narrated a PSA about gender inequity while Daniel Craig dressed in drag.
