I was in the hair salon today, waiting for my stylist when I picked up a copy of  Ladies Home Journal.  I was skimming through it when I came across an article detailing one woman’s battle with domestic violence.  Her name is Amanda White and for the purposes of this article for Ladies Home Journal, she became the face of domestic violence.  Here is her story: 

The Face of Domestic Violence


This story brings home the need to have support groups, organizations and foundations to help women such as Amanda White.  Avon as most of you know has been active in such endeavors.  With the help of Reese Witherspoon, Avon’s Global Ambassador, Avon has become one of the largest corporate supporters of women’s affiliated organizations and charities, such as the fight against domestic violence and breast cancer research.  Avon is not only the company for women, but is empowering them as well.

Please take a look at how you too can help empower women along with Avon and Reese Witherspoon:
