Volocom as Charity Partner for “Women for Women against Violence”
Volocom is pleased to be a charity partner of "Women for Women against Violence” a unique event conceived and organized by Donatella Gimigliano, President of the Consorzio Umanitas which unites two major themes of the female world: gender violence and breast cancer, starting from the scars and indelible marks they leave in a woman's body and soul. The aim of the event, which will be presented by Arianna Ciampoli and Livio Beshir, is to support the "Rescue Suitcase" project of the Salvamamme association, designed to respond to the requests of the many fleeing women victims of violence with a comprehensive action plan that puts them safe in the days following the abandonment of their home or in times of high criticality.
Women united for women, therefore, also to remember that breast cancer, in our country, is the most lethal and most frequent big killer of the female gender and the main cause of cancer mortality.
And to remember that every year, in Italy, over 100 women are killed by men, almost always those who claim to love them. Violence which, for a woman, is not only a threat of death, but also a wound to the image of herself, to her femininity, sexuality and motherhood. Given the importance of the theme, the event enjoys the patronage of Rai, the Lazio Region, the Municipality of Roma Capitale, UNICEF, the Italian Red Cross and the LILT (Italian League Against Cancer).
Valerio Bergamaschi, Founder and Administrator of Volocom stated: "Volocom is proud to support this noble event. As people and as a company we are committed to promoting respect for women and equal opportunities, and it is no coincidence that Volocom is a society with a female majority”.
