Nicole Kidman to Congress: Violence Against Women is Unacceptable

Nicole Kidman to Congress: Violence Against Women is Unacceptable

Nicole Kidman, Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), speaks during the “International Violence Against Women: Stories and Solutions” hearing at Rayburn House Office Building on Wednesday (October 21) in Washington, D.C.

“Violence against women is not prosecuted because it is not a top government and urgent social priority. We can change this,” the 42-year-old Aussie actress told Congress. “[They] need and deserve our support. Not with a box of band aids but with a comprehensive, well-funded approach that acknowledges that women’s rights are human rights.”

FYI: Nicole is wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim dress.

    Violence against men is Unacceptable too.
    There are a lot of women out there who abuse men, which gets overlooked a lot.
    No one should be abused, man or woman or child or animals or plants.

  • dogville

    these “wonder” women never cease to amaze me! and this accomplishes “what” men shouldn’t hit women, that’s BAD! Thanks Nicole, you medal is in the mail.

  • ss334

    is back into Blond hair ? she does look great

  • layla

    U can see clearly the lines – wrinkles on forehead & around the mouth & eyes …
    Iam truly fid up with this subject opened time after time & people post stupid subjects about the same story … when clearly it obvious she is not using Botox
    I must admit she does look really YOUNG & she reminds me of her look in the 90s

  • pan hall

    I never understood how people could be truly narrow minded , when some one like Nicole kidman in a primer or a certain public appearance , there are 50 factors playing a role in her look & u start hearing stories about Botox & the same subjects is opened over & over , then she is in a new occasion with less make up ” the case here ” & obviously she is 100% Botox free … people go like ” her botox is lying off !!!! ” they should understand bottox injects last for minimum 3 months , her Omega appearance was last week !!

  • christine

    @Rosa:
    DIDNT I TELL U & CLINIQUA TO TAKE UR SCHIZOPHRENIC DRUUUUUGS?!

  • toto22frooty

    The Woman is HOT

  • majeda

    classy , elegant , stunning , but why the blond hair !!!

  • eeeme now

    I dont understand why all actresses are dying to do something in the UN , Aneglian , Naomi , Theron & Kidman !!
    she is so seriuse in these pictures !!
    Looking really good

  • the rocky

    Wasnt she having red hair last week ??
    man she is Stunning in these pics

  • dee cee

    Ouch.. that law enforced has got to hurt a lot of cultures who consider women and children private property, just a little lower than land, livestock and crops.

    United Nations Development Fund for Women is a joke as most of their leaders and members are of those cultures who do not respect the freedom and basic rights of women or children and will not enforce any law that takes away the man’s control over their bargaining tool, to keep, barter or kill at his whim.

  • oy

    Agreed Bessett. She’s a beautiful woman. The filler in the lips is out of control. Amazing and sad that someone can be that renowned for their beauty and talent and still be insecure enough to tinker with their face.

  • m

    I feel so proud of be a fan of hers, she´s certanly a rule model

  • http://www.gsr-twn.blogspot.com Gregory

    They found Somer’s little dead virgin body in a swampy garbage dump on the same day Nicole was in DC… I wonder why?

  • Status quo

    I like her better there! With a fuller face and less botox! Girl looks amazing! She seriously does not need Botox man…every time she gets it I want to cry. I’m really happy for her :)

  • eliza

    Kudos to Nicole and Angelina and Charlize and a host of others who use their celebrity to draw attention to important causes. That’s the function they serve, and I admire them for getting involved. Nicole looks lovely, by the way – a very classy woman,

  • LadyB

    Nicole will always be smart and stunnung. People think she’s done plastic surgery and botox ..she sais she hasn’t and I believe her 100%. She has that rare skin that is pale and almost perfect. Marcia Cross also has that kind of skin. They are very pale and almost wrinkle free.

  • lolo

    i love everything about her !! she is an icon

  • liona alone

    i really loved her new red hair , she looks good with the blond hair , but i think the ginger was perfect on her

  • EaISo

  • sandra’s dream

    I think she should do a movie where she is working in a congress or something !! she does look very seriuse in these pics ..
    Go Nicole

  • GONDA

    this is a good effort

  • copyboy

    OK help me here , how on earth would they transform her into a man in The Danish Girl , cant wait for the first on set pic
    She does look really good in these photos , considering the fact she is 42

  • Moi

    @christine:
    You are the idiot with Schizophrenia if you can’t get in inside your head that DOMESTIC ABUSE GOES BOTH WAYS.

  • Sassy

    Maybe she did have work on her lips, they look better now than they did when she first did it, sort of in the middle of overboard & natural thin lips.
    Anyway, overall she looks gorgeous. I wish for her & her husband to have another child too.
    She could give some lessons to Katie Holmes on how to pose & work it on the runway. Nicole always has perfect posture, and 99% of the time is dressed impeccably. Katie needs a new stylist!
    I wonder if Nicole is reading about the upcoming collapse of the scientology cult & hears what’s coming out of her ex’s mouth! Calling protestors “squirrels”…..parroting the cult leader. No mind of his own left. What a shame! ROCK ON NICOLE, soooo glad you got the heck out of that mess. I hope you see your 2 older kids often, they are growing up so fast. Don’t see much of Bella in the tabs but that Connor, WHOA, what a cutie!!!!!!

  • clay

    @popart: I am not a fan of Chris Brown, but clearly he is not the first guy to wop a woman. By the way, did you see the Tyra show the other day of a woman abusing a man? What if that was your son this woman was slapping around? Its time to drop this Chris Brown biz.

  • lisa

    looks like she’s on her way to becoming a jocelyn wildenstein in this picture http://cdn.buzznet.com/media/jj1//2009/10/congress-kidman/nicole-kidman-congress-violence-against-women-05.jpg

  • Pippi

    She is amazing but I think it was very rude and not nice at all for the photographer to get so close as to show her bloodshot eyes. The focus should be kept at the core of her mission and less on how she looked and etc. Kudos to a lovely woman on a mission.

  • share me

    why doesnt she start filming a movie … great effort for this , plz go back to movies
    i love how classy she is

  • input

    lovely Nicole

  • s339

  • trvisty
