Women on the R.I.S.E.

by Sholayide Otugalu |

Joséphine Cosmetics encourages women to be both feminine and aggressive in their stance against violence and to belie stereotypes that suggest this combination is not possible. With every purchase of a Joséphine product in our new lip arsenal, we will donate partial proceeds to support RISE's efforts in addressing gender based violence.

Women on the R.I.S.E.! Meet the femme vigilantes who stand up and work diligently to end gender based violence. Read more about the @riseslo all stars below:

Q: What do you think about (the "oxymoron") feminine power?

Meet Ashleigh Vereen, our Education Services Manager here at

RISE! She is wearing Joséphine Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Mimosa.

Q: Hey superhero, why are you fighting to end gender-based violence through your role at RISE?
A: I feel that survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence are superheroes in this field and I am proud to say I am one of them. But I don't identify as only a survivor, I identify as a warrior. I am fighting to end gender-based violence because no one should ever be made to feel that they are unworthy of love or respect.

Q: What super power do you wield in this fight?
A: I always speak my mind...even if it gets me in trouble!

Ashleigh, thank you for all that you do!
