Salma Hayek is raising awareness among people about domestic violence these days. The 48-year-old Mexican actress was a speaker at TheWrap Power Women’s Breakfast in Beverly Hills, California and talked emotionally about her contributions on behalf of women in front of Hollywood female executives.
Hayek wore a sleeveless LBD styled with a matching cardigan and shoulder bag. The mother-of-one displayed her slim physique in a knee-length black dress with a pair of strappy high heels. Salma Hayek styled her dark locks in layered curls and kept her flawless complexion looking natural. Known for her smouldering looks and enviable shape, Salma urged others to prevent domestic violence. ‘If you want to stop violence in the world it has to start in the home,’ she said. ‘If we can win this war, we can win the war against violence.’
Salma argued that she didn’t want her status as a movie star to hinder the work of others. ‘I was so passionate about it that to me it was a part of me that had nothing to do with being a celebrity.’ She further added, ‘Sometimes you do more awareness by being aware of yourself and living in the presence of this awareness than by talking until you die. I don’t come from a background of domestic violence, but I think it’s incredibly important.’
Recently, Salma Hayek produced a documentary Humaira: The Game Changer on Pakistani education advocate Humaira Bachal, at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Deauville, France. The conference that was attended by several female leaders in the fields of business, science, education and human rights, supported the mission to strengthen “women influence throughout the globe”.
