In Memory of Former V-Counsel Member Dame Anita Roddick


Dame Anita Roddick, founder of the Body Shop and a former V-Counsel member, passed away on Monday at the age of 64. Roddick was an incredible and influential supporter of V-Day, taking part in many V-Day events including V-Day UK and Jour V, held in Brussels in 2005.

V-Day would like to extend our deepest sympathy for her family and friends. Dame Anita’s life work on behalf of women and the environment will never be forgotten. Her spirit, her vitality and her humor will be sorely missed.
