Nicole Kidman & Christina Aguilera Team Up to End Violence Against Women
UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman and songstress Christina Aguilera have teamed up with Lifetime Television in their campaign to “End Violence Against Women.”
Launching a global effort with UNIFEM, the United Nations Development Fund for Women, and Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman:
To highlight the epidemic of violence against women internationally, Lifetime is partnering with UNIFEM and its Goodwill Ambassador, Oscar-winning actress Kidman, on an original PSA and online content. On LifetimeTV.com, visitors will find interviews with Kidman sharing why she became a UNIFEM Goodwill Ambassador, reflecting on her recent trip to Kosovo where she visited sexual assault survivors and urging support for UNIFEM’s efforts to this. LifetimeTV.com will also offer resources providing ways to get involved, and features highlighting how — through the UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women — women are working in big and small ways to combat violence across the globe.
Taking the campaign message on tour — at Christina Aguilera‘s “Back to Basics” Concerts:
Three years ago, Lifetime took Christina Aguilera‘s mother, a domestic violence survivor, to Washington to testify before Congress. Now her multi- Grammy-winning daughter — whose powerful song “Oh Mother” is a tribute to her mother and all those who have experienced abuse and who have supported shelters in her hometown of Pittsburgh and Los Angeles — is starring in an original PSA that will air on Lifetime and throughout April. In addition, multi-Grammy winner Aguilera is bringing the campaign messages of hope, courage and activism on her “Back to Basics” tour by showing her Lifetime PSA on jumbotrons; recognizing survivors and advocates who Lifetime, Aguilera and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) specially invite to her concerts; and distributing Lifetime’s new educational brochures with information on ways to get involved.
