Kerry Washington Is Carrying Her Purple Purse - Find Out Why!

Kerry Washington heads out into town to do some press for her show Scandal on Tuesday afternoon (September 16) in New York City.

The 37-year-old actress held onto her purple purse and there is a reason she is carrying around the special clutch these days. Kerry filmed a PSA for Allstate Foundation’s Purple Purse program to raise awareness on domestic violence and financial abuse.

“One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence. Finances are almost always a weapon of choice. Taking away access to cash, destroying credit, jeopardizing jobs; financial abuse leaves invisible bruises that can take decades to heal,” Kerry says in the PSA. “But there’s hope. Allstate Foundation Purple Purse makes it easier to recognize, talk about, and stop financial abuse. Help women gain control of their purse strings.”
