Since its inception in 2009, the PPR Foundation has been committed to the fight against domestic violence by the side of the FNSF Federation, a French NGO operating the 3919 help line.
The signature of the Charter for the Prevention and Fight against Domestic Violence in 2010 attested to Chairman François-Henri Pinault’s determination to open wide the gates of PPR Group to FNSF in an effort to inform, mobilise and raise the awareness of the 30,000 employees in France.
Discover the new FNSF campaign unveiled today, intending to shatter preconceived ideas on the perpetrators of violence, and spread to the PPR employees: “Quite often, the abuser is Mr. Anybody”. He appears beyond suspicion, but manipulates his family, relatives, and business relations. Or he will blame his wife”, explains Françoise Brié, FNSF Vice President. “Perpetrators of domestic violence who acknowledge their guilt and look for help are very rare. They believe they have no problem, or keep saying that they’ll change. And that makes it hard for women and girls to be believed when they attempt to speak up and describe what they are going through in their life”.
