Since 2009, the PPR Foundation has been supporting the work of Catherine Cabrol, especially her photographic exhibition Injuries To Women: giving the opportunity to women reduced to silence, to denounce oppression and violence against them.
On the occasion of 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Catherine Cabrol asked men, famous actors, to get committed to women’s cause by reading the stories of Injuries to Women. Her objective: create the surprise, and establish masculine-feminine emotion and respect, to “open minds and make people informed and involved to better fight together”.

"I wanted to show the martyrdom that women like me live. To denounce the silence of those who know but conceal. And to answer to those who wonder why a beaten woman has so much difficulty to leave her torturer."
A mother of four, Alexandra Lange, 33 years old, was acquitted for the murder of her husband by the Douai criminal court on March, 23rd 2012. In Law, an act now bears her name.
In her book, "Acquittée - je l'ai tué pour ne pas mourir" ("Acquitted, I killed him to live"), she tells about the blows, the insults, the humiliation, the fear. By recognizing her case as self-defense, French justice cast a light on victims of domestic violence.
This decision is not only a victory for Alexandre Lange, it also represents a hope for all women who, each day, undergo the same sufferings.
