Keira Knightley, Elton John and More Celebs Speak Out Against Violence on International Women's Day
In honor of International Women's Day on Friday, a slew of celebs have come together in an effort to end violence against women. Keira Knightley, Elton John, Annie Lennox and other stars signed an open letter published in The Guardian that supports the rights of women around the world to live without fear of abuse. "Friday is the 102nd International Women's Day and women – and men – across the world will join their voices in unison to echo the same sentiment: We must all commit to end violence, rape and abuse," reads the letter. "We can't continue to ignore the fact that women aged 15-44 are more at risk from rape and domestic violence than from cancer, car accidents, war and malaria combined… Men and women have united to stand for equality and change … We stand collectively and say 'we won't accept violence.'"
