Gloria Gaynor is currently serving as a spokesperson for the National Network to End Domestic ViolenceHere‘s the group’s announcement:

For more than three decades, “I Will Survive” has been a beacon of hope for countless victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.  The film industry has featured “I Will Survive” on the soundtrack of more than half a dozen major motion pictures, and VH-1 honored Gloria Gaynor with the number one spot during their countdown of Top 100 Dance Records of All Time.

Evident by numerous awards received over the years, Gloria Gaynor’s popularity has continuously flourished throughout the decades – a testament to how the message of survival resonates with women across generations.

As a spokesperson for the National Network to End Domestic Violence, Ms. Gaynor wants to bring greater awareness to domestic violence and help bring an end to this devastating social issue.

“I am truly honored to lend my voice to the National Network to End Domestic Violence,” said Gaynor.  “Over the years, so many women have shared their personal stories with me about suffering through abuse and seeing hope through my music.  Domestic violence affects everyone, and everyone should become part of the solution.”

To be sure, ending domestic violence is never as simple as saying, “Go on now, go.  Walk out the door.”  But what a message in “I will survive!”
