Actress Megan Fox has offered her support to charity bosses at the Avon Foundation to bring awareness to the plight of women who are victims of domestic violence. The Transformers star and bosses at Avon kicked off the International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women on Monday (25Nov13), and in a video posted to her Facebook.com page, Fox says, "The statistics are frightening, one in three women around the world will be a victim of violence in their lifetime, but people aren't talking about it and without conversation the issue of domestic violence stays hidden. That's why, in recognition of the 16 Days Of Activism Against Gender Violence, I am glad to support Avon's global social media campaign, See The Signs." Fox, who played a victim of domestic abuse in the video for Eminem's Love the Way You Lie, took part in an Avon Foundation event to educate people about the issue last week (begs18Nov13) in New York, where she debuted her baby bump. The actress and her husband, Brian Austin Green, are expecting their second child next year (14).
