“I hid from the responsibility to speak out with the excuse that enough people were already involved in shining a light on my monster,” Hayek writes in her piece for the NYT. The 55-year-old is perhaps best known as chairman and CEO of Kering, and the chairman of Groupe Artemis.

Speaking to Variety about the meeting, Pinault recalls, “Thanks to Salma, I started discovering the violence that women face everywhere, even in countries like France (every three days, a woman dies of physical abuse in France, for instance) and the U. Frankly, it was a total shock.” Couple this with the fact that he owns a luxury goods business and that 80% of his customers (and 60% of his employees) are women, and it is clear why Pinault chose to ignore advisers when they told him that creating a charitable foundation to help women fight violence was “not on brand”.
In 2009, Pinault founded the Kerig Foundation, which aims to combat violence against women.
The foundation’s website reveals that it focuses on each of the following three regions: sexual violence in the Americas, harmful traditional practices in Western Europe, and domestic violence in Asia.
The foundation’s efforts have benefited over 140,000 women to date.
Two months later they repeated their vows with family and friends in Venice.
