The target audience is not the victim of domestic violence but the family and friends of women who might be in trouble. Therefore the campaign is entitled Support a Friend.

Angela Tucker, Head of Recruitment and Sales at Avon says: “Harnessing Avon’s unprecedented woman-to-woman network of independent Representatives and the significant reach of social media, we are determined to confront this issue.  Simple and easy to use, this interactive video will send a shockwave of awareness through the online community and empower women to learn more about domestic violence.”
