Opening night, Allstate will take to the runway with a purple purse specially designed by Kerry Washington, making domestic violence and financial abuse fashionable to talk about.

 

 

Financial abuse occurs in 98 percent of domestic violence cases and is one of the most powerful ways to prevent a victim from leaving. Purple Purse Charms will also be distributed to attendees to attach to their handbags to show their support for the issue and raise awareness during October’s National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Purple is the color of domestic violence awareness and a purse represents the center of a woman’s financial domain.
