Reese Witherspoon Heads to Washington
Avon Global Ambassador Reese Witherspoon made the rounds in Washington D.C. yesterday to promote the beauty brand's initiatives to end violence against women. The actress began her day at the State Department looking lovely in a Roland Mouret dress for the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women breakfast. After attending the International Women of Courage Awards, which was hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, she finished the night at the Kennedy Center, which hosted the Vital Voices 2010 Global Leadership Awards. Along with her outreach as Avon's ambassador, Witherspoon also helped launch the Women's Empowerment Ring, which she wore during her D.C. visit and is sold for $5 on avon.com. All proceeds will support domestic violence programs throughout the U.S. "There is nothing more important for all of us than ensuring the safety of women and girls everywhere," Witherspoon said in a statement. "It's critical that we find ways to work together, as a global community, to combat it."
