Women’s Aid is proud to announce the Empowering Women Awards

To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th 2010, Avon UK and Women’s Aid are launching the Empowering Women Awards, which provide an unprecedented opportunity to celebrate the achievements and bravery of a host of incredible women across the UK. The Awards, which are in association with Marie Claire magazine, will honour both women who have been affected directly by domestic violence and those who are working tirelessly in the field to support survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.

Judges for the Awards include Women’s Aid Patron Sarah Brown, Ambassador Tana Ramsay, Avon Global Ambassador Reese Witherspoon, Marie Claire Editor Trish Halpin, Women’s Aid Chief Executive Nicola Harwin CBE and Avon UK President Anna Segatti.

Women’s Aid Chief Executive Nicola Harwin CBE said: “As well as celebrating the triumphs of survivors of domestic violence, we also want to highlight the fantastic work of the campaigners, activists and service providers that work so hard to end violence against women and children. If you or someone you know deserves an Award, go to and nominate now.”

Forward this email to all your contacts, tell all your friends, and celebrate the women in your life!
