According to our friends at the Avon Foundation for Women, Megan has joined the Foundation in its launch of #SeeTheSigns, a global social media campaign designed to educate the public on recognizing the signs of domestic violence.

Each day, the Avon Foundation will post a new sign on Facebook and Twitter.

Each sign will link to an Avon Foundation webpage where users can find information on the signs of domestic abuse from Avon Foundation funded agencies such as the National Domestic Violence Hotline, the National Network to End Domestic Violence and Safe Horizon. Throughout the campaign, the Avon Foundation will encourage people to spread the word and help others to #SeeTheSigns by sharing the "signs" with their social networks.

Part of the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program, #SeeTheSigns, will run throughout the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, an international human rights-based movement against gender violence.

#SeeTheSigns has been designed to educate bystanders and victims on the signs of domestic violence, and how to safely intervene or seek help when necessary.

Another aspect of #SeeTheSigns is to educate women and men about the important role we all play in recognizing the signs of abuse among our friends and family, and how we can help break the cycle by starting conversations about the issue.

Working in tandem with the hashtag #SeeTheSigns, the new campaign features powerful graphics and “signs” of domestic violence intended to help people recognize the often subtle signs of abuse.

"The lack of conversation about domestic violence keeps the epidemic hidden," said Megan Fox, actress and the face of Avon Instinct fragrances.

"With #SeetheSigns, the Avon Foundation hopes to create a global movement to encourage and motivate people to share and educate others about the signs of abuse so we can break this epidemic of violence."

The #SeeTheSigns campaign runs through Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day.

So, visit Facebook and Twitter every day for your daily sign. The first sign was posted on Nov. 25.
