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.

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

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 :)

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,

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.

i love everything about her !! she is an icon

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

Kidman is rocking in these pics … love her

thiese post prove my point, its about HER!

she shall remain nameless @ 10/21/2009 at 10:27 pm

Lay off the botox!!!

cant wait to see her in NINE & Rabbit HOLE
is she back into Blond hair , i think the ginger hair was fitting perfectly , still looking really good

sandra's dream @ 10/21/2009 at 10:37 pm

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

this is a good effort

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

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

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!!!!!!

@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.

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.

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

how does she look so good at this age ! i would die to have these legs

so why is she wearing two dresses ? is it at the same event ?
she knows how a lady should look like
lovely Nicole

my mom is 42 & she doesnt look like this at all … hottie

Ok no Botox here , but the uper lip had something done …& i think it fits here perfectly

she is avery busy woman

these pics were taken with high resolution cameras , no photographer was that close , still she is a big name , they would die to take as much pics as they can
she looks good here
