The Commonwealth Says NO MORE!
On November 15th, we had the amazing opportunity of participating in the “A Call to Action: Safeguarding the Wellbeing of Women and Children” event, hosted by Commonwealth Secretary-General, the Rt. Hon. Patricia Scotland KC. NO MORE’s co-founder Jane Randel and CEO Pamela Zaballa spoke at the day-long symposium in London that was attended by Her Majesty The Queen and more than a hundred representatives from government, business, academic and civil society from across the 56 Commonwealth countries.
The participating leaders committed to coordinate actions for individuals, households and communities to protect women and girls and prevent violence, which will contribute to the gender equality mandates from the 2023 Commonwealth Women’s Affairs Ministers Meeting and the 2022 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.
Avon and NO MORE Launch the
“Reverse Make-Up Tutorial”
For 16 Days of Activism, Avon and NO MORE have launched a powerful new campaign and video, the “Reverse Makeup Tutorial.” The video aims to shine a light on the controlling and abusive behavior designed to destroy self-esteem and a woman’s power using appearance and makeup as a form of manipulation. This behavior is frequently part of or a precursor to physical violence. The words in the video are based on real experiences of survivors of domestic violence, and signposts to where victims, friends and families can go to seek help.
You can watch the video through the link below. Warning: The content may be triggering. Please take care. Details of where to get help are at the end.
