Marie-Claire Daveu: “There is always an urgent need to speak out about this “taboo of taboos” that is incest”


“I’m tired of talking about this, I’m tired of my work being invaded by this.” These words are those of Christine Angot about the incest she suffered. However, twenty-five years after her autofiction Incest, the writer tells her story again through her first documentary film, A Family, in theaters on March 20, as yet another attempt to find reparation.

The Kering Foundation, which supports this film, also sees it as an opportunity to relaunch the debate on this subject which makes everyone so uncomfortable, on this “taboo of taboos”. For fifteen years, the foundation has made the fight against violence against women its fight. Today, it attacks the root of evil, namely violence against children, in particular incest. Marie-Claire Daveu, director of sustainable development and institutional affairs at Kering, discusses the Kering Foundation’s fight to combat violence against children.

Marie-Claire Daveu: Kering has been committed to the fight against violence against women for fifteen years. We have supported 1 million women “survivors” and around 100 partner organizations across seven countries – France, the United States, Italy, Mexico, the United Kingdom, China and Korea.
