This purple purse, designed by Scandal star Kerry Washington, is a symbol of the fight against domestic abuse.
Kerry Washington designed the purse in support of the Allstate Purple Purse campaign, which aims to help women escape situations of domestic violence through financial assistance. In addition to being a brand ambassador for Purple Purse, this is the second literal purple purse Kerry Washington has designed for the cause. The first edition raised $2.5 million for the foundation. This purple purse will be available for purchase at Saks Fifth Avenue as well as on the Purple Purse website.
One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence at some point in her life, and 98% of these cases involve financial abuse.
