Over the past few months Reese has made several public appearances including the launch of her In Bloom fragrance for Avon and a keynote speech at the House of Commons about domestic violence. Close to 200 HQ and MQ images from these events and more have been added to the gallery and I believe that our 2009 events section is now up to date.

Reese Witherspoon has visited the House of Commons to raise awareness of domestic violence as part of joint campaign by Avon and the charity Refuge.
The actress, who is the global ambassador for the cosmetics company, spoke on behalf of the crusade, calling for more government funding for victim support services in the UK.
”There remains what can seem like an impenetrable wall of silence around violence and we must all play a role in breaking this silence,” she said.
A YouGov poll commissioned by Avon found that 92 per cent of people think they do not know anyone who is or has been a victim of domestic violence, when in fact one in four women suffer at the hands of a partner in their lifetime.
Ms Witherspoon said the problem was “pandemic” around the world and added that she was motivated to support the campaign by a friend who had gone through such an experience as a young woman.
In March, she launched a worldwide campaign on behalf of the cosmetics company aimed at ending violence against women.
A couple of days back in New York city, Reese previewed her new fragrance (as part of her Avon duties) In Bloom. Pictures are surfacing now and I’ve added the first available ones. Reese looks just stunning and so feminine at the event.
“It was a unique experience for me because I had no idea what goes into making perfumes. I thought you just pick a fragrance and it’s easy. But there were all these different levels of creating a scent that were new to me, but really fun and exciting.”
“I was really drawn by white flowers to get that sense of a steamy night somewhere in the South. Definitely gardenia is a big thing for me because my father — every Mother’s Day or on my birthday — would buy small bouquets or corsages for my mother and I. And my mother always wore beautiful white-flower perfumes, so as a young girl, that was my idea of femininity. It’s indicative of where I am today. I’m feeling very strong and independent and so happy. The fragrance really captures that feeling — it’s very sensual, very romantic and alluring.”
The fragrance will be available exclusively from Avon in November.

Reese Witherspoon, global ambassador and honorary chairperson of the Avon Foundation for Women, announced at a press conference before the Global Forum a new Avon fundraising product: the Women’s Empowerment Necklace.
Launched as a companion piece to the 2008 Women’s Empowerment Bracelet, the Necklace is accessibly priced at just $5.00. It will be sold through Avon‘s Sales Representatives and on www.avon.com. All net proceeds of the Necklace will support domestic violence programs, building upon the $4 million already raised by the Bracelet in one year. In the US every Women’s Empowerment product sold will include a free Domestic Violence Resource Guide to increase awareness of this epidemic of violence and encourage everyone to speak out so it stops.
In the gallery you can view pictures of Reese at the conference. She looked very pretty and classy in a dark dress and wearing her own empowerment necklace. Thanks to Mariana for lending many photo donations of this event!
