Reese Witherspoon Talks Breast Cancer Awareness: 'These Are The Issues Affecting Women Every Day'
Reese Witherspoon joins participants at the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer
When I was first approached by Avon to represent their foundation … I wanted to know, what were the issues on women’s minds? … Breast cancer is first and foremost on the list of concerns for women. Domestic violence is also in the top three … It was really an education for me to see that these are the issues affecting women every day of their lives.
Whether people are making movies about issues or TV shows, or giving money, or giving their voice to raise funds -– any one of those ways that people help shine the spotlight on these issues that are affecting so many people is great … It’s very humbling [to] feel like you can make any kind of change in this world. I’m very lucky to be able to do that.
