Domestic violence affects 1 in 4 women in her lifetime – yet it’s a difficult topic to talk about.
To get the conversation started and raise awareness for domestic violence, The Allstate Foundation created the Purple Purse Challenge to make it fashionable to talk about domestic violence and the financial abuse that traps women in abusive relationships.
