Rosario Dawson Speaks Out Against Domestic Violence and Encourages Other to Join Movement!
As part actress and part activist, Rosario Dawson likes to call herself an “actRivist“! In this role, she uses her voice and her celebrity status to help bring awareness to some very, very important causes, one of those being women’s rights. This month, she is specifically helping with Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and using her voice to raise some very good points.
“People have to take responsibility for what they’re choosing to do in their own lives. There’s a big difference in me growing up loving Die Hard and Rocky and not becoming a violent person. There’s a difference between entertainment and actually throwing acid in someone’s face or raping a woman or abusing a child.” Rosario Dawson, quoted on Huffingtonpost.com
