In celebration of Women’s History Month please join our social media campaign to “Kiss Domestic Violence Goodbye”. During the month, we hope to bring greater awareness and empowering encouragement to survivors we have been honored to know and to those we haven’t met yet.
The Why of the Campaign | #kissdomesticviolencegoodbye
Domestic violence abusers often use makeup as a weapon, and often take away, or control use of products. Why is this problematic? The way we dress, do our makeup, and present ourselves is a way to show our personality, to stand out, or blend in, and feel comfortable and empowered. Many people find themselves and their creativity in makeup, it is the finishing touch on one’s own canvas. Controlling how someone looks on the outside, can hurt their self esteem on the inside. No one should ever have to change how they express themselves or make themselves feel small or less than, to make someone happy.
We don’t often think of the small changes we make for a partner, we don’t think about the pieces of us that we give away freely for love, and how over time those pieces aren’t so small after all. Those small changes can deplete one’s self esteem, one’s identity, and one’s uniqueness.
With your support, we can continue to empower Women to make their own choices and be their best selves!
