Reese Witherspoon is a Global Girl
Avon Global Ambassador Reese Witherspoon attends a press conference introducing Japan’s partnership with the United Nations Development Fund For Women (UNIFEM) to introduce the “Women’s Empowerment Bracelet”, on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.
Reese was also the guest of honor at a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony where she met female breast cancer survivors.
“As Avon’s Global Ambassador, I’m honored to have this opportunity to meet with such extraordinary women, and experience a highlight of Japanese culture,” Reese said. “While their courage is inspiring, I was saddened to hear that only about 12% of women in Japan receive regular breast cancer screening. The lack of testing equipment and breast cancer experts in Japan means that many women here do not have access to the medical technology and care that is critical to diagnose and fight this deadly disease.”
Reese, 32, also introduced Avon’s first-everglobal fundraising product, the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet, which features a clasp in the shape of the infinity symbol to carry the message of the limitless possibilities for women. Over half a million units of the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet have already sold in the U.S.
