Share a Stop Sign Selfie to #StopVAW

You may scoff, but there's no denying that selfies have taken over social media. As ubiquitous as cute cats and breathtaking sunsets, selfies have morphed into a form of self-documentation, a way of showing the world (or your 200 followers) who you are. Though sometimes deemed a simple form of narcissism, there’s no denying that selfies can make a statement.

If you're looking to up your selfie game, why not take one with a powerful message? Starting March 3rd, take part in our #StopVAW campaign to help encourage dialogue and end violence against women and children.


During the week leading up to International Women’s Day (March 8) post a selfie in front of a stop sign with the hashtag #StopVAW and share on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

2014 saw an influx of celebrity abuse cases and a louder, urgent call to end gender-based violence across the globe. And as the New Year moves on, the conversation needs to continue. Encouraging dialogue and sharing with friends, family, and followers can help stop the cycle of violence and empower women to speak up and reach out for help.

Stop that mindless, endless scrolling in its tracks and make a statement with your selfie. After all, there are enough photos of cute cats and sunsets out there.
