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.
