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.

way to go Nic!! Woman Power!

So much in love with you, Nicole.

Nicole, Thank you!

Worst. Actress. Ever.

I simply love her! and she looks beautiful, I mean, she’s 42!
& she’s a great role model!

Nichole is certainly a role model. Bringing these important issues of abuse towards woman … I always looked up to Nicole Kidman. Shes such a beautiful woman with her beautiful family.

she looks beautiful.

God she is gorgeous. The whole package, and its doesnt hurt that she has that talented hunky hubby and a beautiful daughter. God bless her.

@popart: Is he? LOL!

Rosa @ 10/21/2009 at 8:48 pm 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.

You’re correct Rosa.. Nor paps. How about that beating her bodyguard gave that pap. She is a hypocrite!

why do these stars wait until NOW to do all this stuff? It wasn’t as trendy in the 90′s I guess. The UN used to be about something but now they are just a bunch of star- f——— They just want to get a big name attached for the glamour. I don’t think celebrities ever make much of a difference. They aren’t curing cancer. People don’t look at Angelina in foreign countries and say “I know EXACTLY what to do to help” No it’s just a photo op.

These celebrities are constantly saying “we need to do something to help!” Okay but you never tell us what to do, so you’re useless. Just a puppett and photo op.

Aww, baby face

I think she looks great.

very gorgeous

she gets more beautiful as she ages and purple always suitsher ,just Stunning

My daughter is 42 and her facial features are as pure as Nicoles. Nicole may have a little filler in her lips, but at her young age, she can definitely be wrinkle free without Botox. Why do people think 42 is old, a mere child!

She’s a classy lady and an amazing actress I just caught a gem she was in called Fur the Imaginary Story of Diane Arbus with a very hairy Robert Downey Jr.

the abuse on women in other countries is far more horrendous than in the US. But abuse at any level isnt acceptable

classy and elegant

She is stunning

Hey Nicole, I got a cause for violence against women. How about the violence you did against your own face?

How does the botox make you face feel, b**tch!!!

She is lovely
