“My dedication to ending violence against women has grown even stronger since the birth of my daughter just a few weeks ago.

One way I am working to make this crucial societal change is by joining forces with Allstate Foundation Purple Purse, which aims to end domestic violence against women through financial empowerment,” she told PEOPLE.

The PurplePurse campaign organised by the Allstate Foundation is aimed at bringing financial abuse out of the shadows and using financial empowerment to break the cycle of domestic violence on women.
