Domestic violence is an epidemic: one in four women worldwide will be a victim of domestic abuse in her lifetime. It does not discriminate and it can affect anyone, regardless of income, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion.

What’s more, domestic violence has historically been a taboo subject, but in 2004, the Avon Foundation for Women set out to change that, launching the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program. Speak Out builds awareness, educates, and develops and implements prevention and direct service programs. Some of these projects are global, focused on ending gender-based violence and strengthening domestic violence laws.

Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women have contributed nearly $60 million globally to support these goals, which includes nearly $40 million dedicated to U.S. programs. In 2015 alone, the Avon Foundation’s Speak Out program funded 86 grants aimed at ending domestic violence or supporting survivors in 26 states and Puerto Rico, totaling $2.8 million.

The Avon Foundation currently funds domestic violence programs in three core areas:

The Justice Institute on Gender-Based Violence, a collaboration among the U.S. Department of State, Vital Voices Global Partnership, Avon Products, Inc. and Avon Foundation for Women. Each Justice Institute is a multi-day interactive training program, bringing together those who work closely with domestic violence victims: judges, court officers, prosecutors, police officers, and representatives of government agencies and non-governmental organizations. The goal of each Institute is to improve victim protection efforts and the criminal justice response to domestic violence through a trauma-informed approach. The Justice Institute is designed to ensure that in-country existing domestic violence and sexual assault laws better protect victims of domestic and gender violence, from a trauma-informed lens. Avon Foundation has already funded Institutes as follows:

  • 2014: Guadalajara Mexico and Katmandu Nepal
  • 2015: São Paulo Brazil; Delhi India; and Johannesburg South Africa
  • 2016: Tucumán Argentina; Bogotá Colombia; Mumbai India; Manila Philippines; Pretoria South Africa

The National Leadership Institute: Changing the Narrative on Campus Gender-Based Violence, a collaboration with Futures Without Violence, in partnership with Harvard Law School’s Gender Violence Program and University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education. Current funding supports 20 colleges and universities in their collaborative efforts to prevent and reduce violence on their campuses in the Northeast (Boston and surrounding areas) and Southeast (Atlanta and surrounding areas).

Avon Location and Area Sales Domestic Violence Grants currently funds domestic violence agencies providing critical support across the U.S. in communities and regions where Avon has business locations. The Avon Foundation awarded 32 grants totaling $500,000 in 2016.
