Angelina Jolie to Honor Malala Yousafzai at Women in the World
Mar 26, 2013 10:53 AM EDT
On the opening night of the fourth annual Women in the World Summit, Angelina Jolie will honor one of 2012’s bravest young women, Malala Yousafzai. Inspired by Malala’s courage, Jolie committed $50,000 to build a school in Malala’s name through her Education Partnership for Children in Conflict. Joining forces with Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s editor-in-chief, Tina Brown, and the Women in the World Foundation they collectively raised $150,000 for the Malala Fund in October of last year. The fund, administered by Vital Voices Global Partnership, was established on behalf of Malala to realize her vision of the right to education for all girls.

A writer, director, and award-winning actor, Jolie is a fearless advocate who currently holds the position of special envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Last year, Jolie joined forces with U.K. Foreign Secretary William Hague to prevent sexual violence in conflict zones, a major focus of this year’s G8 Summit. The fourth annual Women in the World Summit takes place April 4 and 5 in New York City.

Representing the UN after they sat back and watched the slaughter of half a million plus in 1994.

I count 4 ribs on one side @ 03/26/2013 at 1:37 pm

jeez

ok this is crazy spaming and having a meltdown

Love, love her! She is the most amazing actress in the world.

Everytime I get the urge to criticize her on something nit-picky, I go read the latest Gwyneth article about her writing a book or calling an $800 blazer a Spring “essential”. She could be like so many celebs using their fame for their own gain. The only interest she has in fame it seems is projecting it onto causes that need the attention.

jared,

…you gonna sit there and let this donkey do this to your thread?…

Angie will never get a turkey neck, there simply is not enough fat and skin.
Her head is like a skull on a pole.

It is always a shame when people are so blinded by the prejudices that they can’t give kudos where they are due. I feel sorry for the haters who are trashing her act of compassion and kindness. Obviously they are sick in the head to spew the venom they spew. Whether you like Clooney, Damon, Bono, Geldorf, Winfrey, Pitt, Prince Harry, Duchess Kate etc. (and even Aniston and her commitment to St. Judes)–all of these folks are doing good and their commitment to their causes is undeniable and whether you hate them or not shame on you if you deride that commitment. And if you are going to do so then get off your own a$$ and do something worthwhile.

Queen Angie, Beautiful Soul @ 03/26/2013 at 1:50 pm

Angelina Jolie you are unforgiveble

your actions in defense of the peope in need, show the fabric of your heart and soul.

You are a incredible beautiful woman, your unique and exotic beauty it´s so amazing that your presence bring the atention of all world.

But it is your devotion, your hard work and your great achivements in defense of the people in need that make you the most beautiful SOUL in this world.

Angie, you are a Queen, a beautiful Queen but you are a Angel too, a wonderful and kind Angel, that bring some hope to this unfair world.

Queen Angie, beautiful Soul …. have a safe trip…. kiss

I don’t know why those crazy and envious people come here to despise Angie. She is a gorgeous woman, the most beautiful and kind person ever in hollywood.
Go to worship that JA and her toyboy and leave Brangelina alone….

At least she kind of knows what she’s talking about.

WHEN IS THE WEDDING ANGIE, THOUGHT YOUR FANS SAID YOU GOT MARRIED. BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

AS ALWAYS predictable Pitt had 8 years to marry Angie and didn’t show the slightest interest until rumors of his ex-wife jen aniston went rampant in 2011 then bam all of a suddent they got the promise for the future ring and when it about time for jen to get married the ho has shown up again with a fake wedding band to draw attention on her self. it really embarrasing for them for jen to get married first but it too little too late hos.

So Now May Warm Golden Showers Of Peace Rain Down Upon The Jolies-Pitts Now And Forever More.

jolie and hague called out @ 03/26/2013 at 1:55 pm

AM GLAD that daily mail and british folks have called out jolie and hague fauxhumanitarian deeds

Hague criticized for chasing photo ops with La Jolie jinx

The euro is in crisis, so what is our Foreign Secretary doing in Rwanda with Angelina Jolie?

With Cyprus being pulled back from the brink of collapse and the euro on the verge of meltdown, you might expect the Foreign Secretary to be rather tied up.

But there are some engagements, it seems, that simply can’t be put off.

William Hague has come under fire for travelling to Africa with Angelina Jolie – rather than staying at home to face the somewhat less glamorous task of dealing with the European crisis.

With the Hollywood star by his side, Mr Hague is meeting survivors of r ape and sexual violence in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Foreign Secretary and the Oscar-winning actress have also been meeting local political leaders and asking them to help eradicate sexual violence in conflicts.

But critics have argued that Mr Hague should be focusing his attentions closer to home. Last night William Dartmouth, foreign affairs spokesman for UKIP, said he should be concentrating on the fall-out from Cyprus’s economic crisis, which could have a huge impact for all of Europe.

The MEP added: ‘William Hague should be more concerned with the crisis on our doorstep than chasing photo ops with Hollywood stars.

GOD BLESS JOLLIE PITTS @ 03/26/2013 at 1:59 pm

OH GOD BLESS JOLLIE PITTS YET THEY DONT BELIEVE IN GOD. AM GLAD ALL THESE FAUXHUMANITARIAN ARE NOT FROM THEIR HEART BUT JUST TO PROMOTE THEIR IMAGE AND PHOTO OPS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT RECEIVING ANY BLESSINGS FROM GOD SINCE THEY HAVE SAID THEY DONT BELIEVE IN GOD AND HE DOESNT EVEN EXIST

BOTH STRAIGHT TO HELL IF THEY DONT FIND CHRIST

Oh, good… Now we have the Angie haters PLUS the political haters.

@Used BY the UN:

So, let me get this straight, the unreal amount of rapes these women and children have had to endure in this crazy, “Apocalypse Now” “revolution” is just a distraction, a smoke screen to the REAL threat looming over us, namely satanic world domination.
Get a grip!

just a thought @ 03/26/2013 at 2:05 pm

Jennifer Aniston fans always so classy. NOT.
You do know these childish comments are more a reflection on you than on Angelina Jolie.

this is a shame ¡ nobody speaks about the secret wedding or of the humanitarian mission
how much has my boss paid to PEOPLE?

HUVANE IS BAD, HE IS MY BOSS BUT VILLAIN

@Willie Hague:

What’s the matter? Can’t get it up or your dog tries to bite you when you do?

@lol: Really ????
LOL
Facts
2011: squiggy was with heidi
april 2012 : Brad proposed to angie
august 2012 : ticky proposed to squiggy

So proud to be a fan of Angelina Jolie! Thanks goes to her for helping give a voice to all the victims.

All the bitter Betty’s out. Grouse, vial, and stupid. So what, Angie got the paper for her long union with the love of her live.
Weng where are you?

Wonderbust @ 03/26/2013 at 2:17 pm

These hens and fuglyfemales are psycho glad Angelina has security. And to the dumbass hen yes you are right Angelina traveled bAck in time 19 years ago and said let the genocide occur so that 19 years later I can visit during the anniversary which will coincide with tickys wedding. And lol at the JPs getting engaged last year because of ticky you do realize that tabs have had her getting married to Vince John Mayer and every other person that eventually dumped her needy ass. Hens are scared as heck that Angie is already married because their idol looks even more like an idiot with that people magazine wedding countdown.
