Avon Recognised For Its Global Leadership To Help End Violence Against Women

Dec 15, 2017

Avon has been globally recognised for our Violence Against Women efforts by NGO Together For Girls. In partnership with national governments, civil society and the private sector, Together for Girls brings attention to the issue of violence against girls in support of country driven efforts for change. Every year, during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, Together for Girls celebrates 16 heroes from 16 very different walks of life with 16 very different identities and 16 unique stories. 

The Avon Foundation for Women was chosen as one of the 16, for its work to end violence against women, with a special focus on our very own Christine Jaworsky who is Director of the Avon Foundation. Avon and Christine are in good company as they’re featured alongside former United States Vice President Joe Biden, activist/influencer celebrities and global change-makers.
