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 2014 Communications Awards campaigns are unified around the global cause of ending violence against women and children. This year’s exceptional grantees and all the worthy submissions display expertise, innovation and imagination. 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.
