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.

    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.

    Butterfly Says:

    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!

    Gorgeous
