Iconathon Wall of Silence - Women's Aid This November Avon UK and GLAMOUR magazine teamed up to launch the Wall Of Silence, a campaign created by GLAMOUR reader Charli Bailey who took up the magazine's challenge to its readers to create a campaign for Women's Aid and Refuge. The Wall Of Silence is made up of real people who have posted "shhh" selfies tagged #wallofsilence on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or uploaded them directly to the site. It has also been supported by some of Women's Aid's celebrity supporters, including Ambassadors Jahmene Douglas and Charlie Webster (below). "As a survivor myself, I know how hard it is to open up," says creator Charli. Between November 3 and December 10, Avon will donate £1 to Women's Aid and Refuge for every brick (proceeds split between Refuge and Women's Aid). Avon UK launched its Speak Out against Domestic Violence campaign in 2009 and has raised more than £1.5 million for charity partners Refuge and Women’s Aid.
