Speak Out Against Domestic Violence

by - March 13, 2014

In time with the International Women's Month this March, Avon, the company for women puts forth its 2014 Speak Out Against Domestic Violence (SOADV) campaign, now with a stronger, global effort that aims to educate the public on the issue and get more individuals involved.

Now on its sixth year in the Philippines, SOADV launches the #SeeTheSigns campaign, an international social media initiative that teaches the public to recognize the signs of domestic violence, arming them with the right information to stop abuse. 

Whether you are a victims of abuse or not, you should take a stand, speak out, and do your part against domestic violence. With Social media being so powerful nowadays, we can all use this to further the advocacy. So, let's participate and be part of the #SeeTheSigns campaign.

With 1 in every 3 women becoming victims of domestic violence, Avon continues to raise funds to support its program for victims of abuse, through its Empowerment Circle of Support Necklace, which sells for only Php 399. But now they're retailing it for only Php 199 and with every necklace you buy, Php 20 will go to the Avon Speak Out Fund to support the helpline program of its partner NGOs and promote awareness programs.

Let the Empowerment Circle of Support Necklace serve as a constant reminder for you to be concerned with your own safety, and your loved ones as well.

Let's do what we can and get involved, even in the smallest way possible to stop domestic violence. :)

  1. I blogged about this din here: http://www.fashionbysai.com/2014/03/fight-and-seethesigns-of-domestic.html and I hope you can also share some inspirational quote for women who are being violated. Let's tell all our friends about it. This is a little move that, hopefully, will make a huge difference. :)

  2. I really think we need to tell the women to speak up about Abuse.. Domestic violence is a serious threat for many women. They need to know the signs of an abusive relationship and how to leave a dangerous situation. Many women are shamed into silence believing that the abuse is their fault even if its not

  3. Wow I can't believe the stats - 1 in 3?!
    This is a worthwhile advocacy - and the necklace is really pretty!

  4. A lot of women fear to come out because of a lot of reasons: they wanted to give their children a family, they don't want other people to talk about them, or they would just cling to their abusive husbands because their husbands would tell them that they are no good without them thus crushing their self-confidence.

  5. wooow! ang cute ng accessory ni Avon! in fair may accessories na rin sila ah :)

  6. Their continued support for women's causes is one of the things I like Avon. And I have the same necklace, too. :)
