One in three women worldwide are affected by domestic and partner violence. Men can be victims of partner violence, too, but the vast majority of those affected are women, making this a vital issue for women and families worldwide.
We are dedicated to the empowerment of women globally and ending violence against women is a cause that’s integral to our philanthropy. Our Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative, which launched in 2004, focuses on education, prevention and victim support programs. Today, nearly 50 Avon markets around the world raise funds and awareness to support programs aimed at ending family and gender violence.
