Angelina Jolie Helps Launch Fight Against Rape

Angelina Jolie shakes hands with Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague on Tuesday (May 29) at the Foreign Commonwealth Office in London, England.

The 36-year-old actress helped launch an initiative that aims to combat and prevent sexual violence overseas by drawing “on the skills of doctors, lawyers, police, psychologists, forensic experts and experts in the care and protection of victims and witnesses.”

The launch event featured a screening of Angelina‘s directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which centers around the Bosnian war.

“It is in the context of war and conflict that sexual violence is found to the most appalling degree, and on a scale most of us cannot imagine,” William said in a statement. “[It] is an issue which is central to conflict prevention and to peace building worldwide.”
