Every place in the world has a problem with domestic violence.

I’ve been fighting for this for a long time. So, to see all the other fighters from around the world, it’s really, really special to me. The X-CHANGE is a powerful new website collecting the best global communications campaigns to end violence against women...the X-CHANGE increases the sharing of powerful messages to change public attitudes against violence against women.

Communications Working to End Violence Against Women

The 2015 Communications Awards for Excellence will recognize outstanding communications campaigns and materials from around the world focused on ending violence against women and children. All materials submitted between February 1, 2014 and January 31, 2015 will be reviewed and considered for one of the five $5,000 Avon Communication Awards grants.

An international experts’ panel examine the submissions seeking the highest quality and most innovative, creative and effective campaigns that showcase best practices for changing social norms and behaviors. The X-CHANGE’s growing library underlines the unshakable belief that through targeted communications we can change behaviors, attitudes and laws and, together, end gender-based violence.
