When In Manila, or anywhere else, it is a sad fact that 1 in every 3 women become victims of domestic abuse. Even in our modern society, there are still those who exploit women physically, emotionally, and even financially.
Avon’s Speak Out Against Domestic Violence Campaign has been raising awareness for this issue since 2009. The first step is always knowing that there is a problem.
The recently released No to Violence necklace which comes in a beautiful whistle pendant symbolizes a pledge to speak out against violence.
Not only does it represent resolve to put a stop to violence directed at women, it can also be a tool that can deter violence directed at the wearer as it is a fully functional whistle. You can now ‘blow the whistle’ against violence literally and figuratively.
Who knew that this fragile little thing can pack so much meaning and possible defense? It doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty, too.
When in Manila, it’s time to make a stand for women everywhere. I say no to domestic violence and any kind of violence directed at women.
The Avon No to Violence whistle necklace retails at PHP 399 and proceeds go to the campaign’s NGO partner.
