Avon Foundation and Speak Out: Become An Upstander

Watch video: Speak Out Against Domestic Abuse | Maria Sharapova & The Avon Foundation

RECOGNIZE. RESPOND. ACT.

March 8 is International Women’s Day — a day when people around the world pause to recognize the progress made in the advancement of women. It is also a time to consider some of the key issues still facing women and their families, such as domestic violence and sexual assault.

For this reason, the Avon Foundation for Women partnered with leaders in the areas of domestic violence and sexual assault to provide the tools and knowledge to help you speak out in your community.

Our goal is to help you recognize the signs of abuse and start conversations to end the silence around domestic violence and sexual assault in your workplaces, schools, homes, and communities; respond to help someone who may be experiencing domestic violence, dating abuse or sexual assault; and take actions to help end the violence.

Recognize the Signs of Abuse

Recognize the Signs of Abuse
Domestic violence is much more than physical abuse. It can include verbal, sexual, mental, and financial abuse. It knows no boundaries: it affects anyone, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or religion. In fact, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in the U.S. are victims at some point in their lives.

Learn More about the Signs of Abuse

Respond: Help Someone

Respond: Help Someone
Many people do not know how to support someone who is a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. Learn how to start the conversations that help family, friends, or colleagues who are impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault. You can make a difference. It starts with you. Safely intervene to prevent or stop domestic violence and sexual assault.

Human Rights Buzz … Vital Voices Global Partnership, Avon Foundation for Women, Fergie and the U.S. Department of State Launch New Initiative.

Fergie and Avon Products, Inc. CEO Sheri McCoy

Avon Foundation Global Ambassador Fergie and Avon Products, Inc. CEO Sheri McCoy visit Washington, D.C. to announce a new global initiative to end violence against women with the Avon Foundation for Women, Vital Voices, and the U.S. State Department.

Initiative Supports Victims of Extreme Forms of Gender-Based Violence and Creates Global Criminal Justice Responses in India, Mexico, Nepal, South Africa and other countries

Mar 21, 2014
12:44pm

Washington, D.C., March 20, 2014 / PR Newswire / — The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women, a collaboration of Vital Voices Global Partnership, the Avon Foundation for Women and the U.S. Department of State, today presented a new initiative to address gender-based violence: the Gender-Based Violence Emergency Response and Protection Initiative.

In making the announcement, Vital Voices CEO Alyse Nelson said, “We are delighted to be part of this new initiative that leverages the knowledge and expertise of our global women leaders to rapidly and effectively identify and respond to the immediate needs of victims. From providing legal services to women who have suffered domestic violence, to creating viable employment opportunities for survivors of human trafficking these leaders know their communities and they have designed solutions that restore freedom and dignity. They are bringing us closer to a world free of violence.”

The Gender-Based Violence Emergency Response and Protection Initiative is a first-of-its-kind global program dedicated to assisting victims of extreme forms of gender-based violence and harmful traditional practices around the world. The Initiative takes comprehensive steps to eradicate domestic violence, sexual assault, honor crimes and other forms of gender-based violence by providing critical support to survivors. By providing short-term emergency grants to cover medical care, emergency shelter, legal assistance, and other related costs, the program allows victims in urgent situations to access life-saving services.

“Gender-based violence is a global epidemic and an affront to humanity,” said Uzra Zeya, Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor. “It is our privilege to join in launching the GBV Initiative, a unique partnership which aims to uphold the dignity and advance the human rights of women and girls around the world.”

The Initiative takes a holistic approach to addressing these crimes by creating a global gender-based violence training program for law enforcement, judges, prosecutors, government officials, and NGO advocates – The Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence. Over the next two years, the program will work with criminal justice professionals and service providers in India, Mexico, Nepal, South Africa and other countries to develop and provide training that promotes a victim-centered approach to holding offenders accountable for their crimes.

Avon Foundation Global Ambassador Fergie said, “The new Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence is designed to ensure that laws achieve their promise. It will go even further to protect women who are victims of violence and secure justice for them. I am so proud to announce this pioneering new partnership of the Avon Foundation for Women, Vital Voices and the State Department.”

Cindy Dyer, Vice President for Human Rights at Vital Voices Global Partnership and a former specialized domestic and sexual violence prosecutor, states, “We are honored to be part of these groundbreaking, comprehensive initiatives that will provide victims of gender-based violence not only with the critical services they need, but also with the justice they deserve.”

Avon has donated more than $780 million in 58 countries to improve access to quality breast health care and to accelerate research into the causes and prevention of breast cancer. We are steadfast in our commitment to create an even brighter future. We link more than 200,000 U.S. women to screening, care and other support programs annually.
