Avon is trying to eradicate violence against women and it’s doing so by two big efforts. The first is the partnership with actress Reece Witherspoon to present the Empowerment necklace.

It’s only $5 and 100 percent of profits will benefit the Avon Empowerment Fund to end violence against women. But the biggest effort is the $1.5 million grant by the Avon Foundation for Women that will launch the Avon Global Center for Women and Justice at Cornell Law School. The new school will work with government, organizations and legal professionals to gain for justice for women who have been victims.
