Despite many areas of progress, breast cancer and domestic violence remain prominent issues impacting women worldwide, with one in eight diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, and one in three impacted by gender violence. Too many women continue to suffer, and too many victims are vividly aware of the pain of abuse. Together, Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women hope to change this-- because even one is too many.
