AVON Promise to Help End Violence Against Women and Girls

Monday, March 18, 2019

     Violence against women is a big NO NO that's why when I see receive campaign advocacies to raise awareness, I will share it to all the women asap. In time for Women's Month, Avon Philippines renews the promise to help end gender-based violence  and introduces fundraising product to support partner NGOs

     Violence continues to affect millions of women around the world – we have witnessed it, and some of us may even have experienced it. In the Philippines, harassment cases continue to rise alarmingly and are not at all limited to the physical kind of abuse. More information about the advocacy after the jump.

Avon Promise to Help End Violence Against Women and Girls
  • 1 out of 4 married Filipinas have experienced abuse from their partners
  • 3 in 5 Filipinas have been sexually harassed in their lifetime
  • Online harassment has victimized mostly women aged 15 to 35
  • This Women’s Month, Avon Philippines renews its Promise to Help End Violence Against Women and Girls, as part of the company’s recently launched global plan Stand4Her, which aims to improve the lives of 100 million women by advancing their earning potential, freedom of expression, and ability to live a safe and healthy life. 

     Ruffa Gutierrez and her daughters Lorin and Venice Gutierrez are serving as celebrity ambassadors for the campaign, helping shine a light on the different forms of abuse, and encouraging everyone to join the crusade against violence through their own stories.

     In a series of online videos by Avon Philippines, Ruffa and her daughters share their personal experiences and insights on catcalling, online harassment, and abusive relationships – encouraging women to stand up for each other and to never tolerate such behavior.

     As part of the Promise to Help End Violence Against Women and Girls, Avon has also created the limited edition Free as a Butterfly jewelry set to help fund partner NGOs that empower abused victims and survivors through support, guidance, and inspiration with proceeds of the collection sales.

  1. will surely purchase one. Am always an Avon buyer from intimates, essentials to jewelries . Aside sa affordable is guaranteed that won't tarnish.
    I am in full support of this campaign/movement against violence because i witnessed violence at home eversince. My Mama has been a battered wife . We as children esp me experience diff punishments at home. No doubt Papa loves us but his way of discipline is too much. He had a bad temper. I grw up feeling unloved and broken but i learned to forgive.
    So, kudos to Avon for such an empowering move in supporting this kind of advocacy 👏

  4. May ibang kababaihan pa rin po kasi ang natatakot pa rin magreklamo or lumaban kapag may nangyayari na po sa kanilang karahasan alang-alang kasi sa kanilang mga anak or para wala na lang issue or gulo.
