Her name and face are recognized worldwide. Nicole Kidman starred in Moulin Rouge, Australia, Bewitched and many other films. Now her star shines on another platform. She is a crusader in the fight to end violence against women; commonly referred to as domestic violence. Nicole Kidman is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women and spoke in front of the US Congress in October 2009.
On January 8, 2010 Nicole Kidman helped launch the Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) New International Center. The FVPF and UNIFEM are 2 organizations who work together to end domestic violence on a global scale. This 100 year old building will be used to host conferences, forums and international workshops. Utilization of the center and the partnership of these and other organizations is a major step forward to ending violence against women.
The opening of the center is an exciting way to begin 2010. We look forward to hearing more great things about the organizations on the page and the center itself.
