Salma Hayek on How Parkland Students' Activism Connects to #MeToo Movement

During her Kering Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival, Salma Hayek chatted about how it’s a new era for men after #MeToo and how the movement relates to the activism of Stoneman Douglas High School students after the devastating shooting in Parkland, Fla., in February.

“I personally think that the movement of the students after the attack in Florida had to do with the #MeToo movement,” she said. “We had horrific tragedies, so many deaths, but the students themselves had not had the strength together to say: ‘No more.’ ‘Time’s Up’ in a different way. And as I recall it, it was the girls who were the strongest speakers of the problem. And so I think that it’s an invitation for us to think differently and to act differently.”
