Megan Fox Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence
This bisexual bombshell and actress is doing her bit to end violence against women.
By Melanie Barker
March 8 was International Women’s Day (IWD), but every day, violence against women and girls persists around the world, and even in the LGBT community. Intimate partner and domestic violence is a problem not only in the heterosexual community, but in the lesbian community as well. As Curve’s Kathy Belge (aka Dipstick) writes: “The typical image of a battered woman is a heterosexual woman attempting to hide a black eye in the grocery store. But domestic violence does not just happen to straight couples. Domestic violence statistics show that violence is just as prevalent in gay and lesbian relationships as it is in heterosexual couples. In fact, 30% of couples struggle with domestic violence of some sort.”
International Women’s Day is a day to remember the issues that face women 365 days of the year. In celebration of this day, and the strength of the female gender, the Avon Foundation for Women worked with actress Megan Fox to spread awareness of domestic violence. Avon Foundation has launched the new Empowerment Tennis Bracelet, which will donate 100% of the net profit from the bracelet to the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative to fund programs to end violence against women.
The Empowerment Bracelet is available for only $5, and $3.47 of the purchase price is donated to Avon Foundation for Women Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program. The bracelet features interlocking infinity symbols, which on Avon Empowerment products represent lives with unlimited potential when free from violence. The silvertone and faux stones bracelet measures 7 1/4" in length with a 1" extender and can be purchased at http://shop.avon.com
“The Avon Empowerment Tennis Bracelet is a simple way to raise funds to help break the cycle of violence against women,” says Megan Fox, star of Jennifer’s Body and the face of Avon Instinct fragrances. “In honor of International Women's Day, I urge you to join me in making a difference by purchasing, wearing or giving the Empowerment Bracelet to help women everywhere live a life free from violence.”
