About Knock Out Abuse Against Women
Jill Sorensen, a former fashion model for the Elite and Ford agencies in Paris and New York, and her friend Cheryl Davis Masri, owner of a Washington DC based advertising agency, founded Knock Out Abuse Against Women in 1993. Their vision was to create a non-profit organization to build public awareness and financial support to eradicate domestic violence and to help women and children whose lives have been shattered by abuse, poverty and homelessness.
