Angelina Jolie: United Nations Security Council Meeting!

Angelina Jolie: United Nations Security Council Meeting!

Angelina Jolie speaks before a United Nations Security Council Meeting on “Women and Peace and Security and Sexual Violence in Conflict” held at the UN Headquarters on Monday morning (June 24) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress, who is a Special Envoy for the UNCHR, criticized the UN Security Council powers for their lack of action over wartime rapes.

“You set the bar,” Angie told the council (via the Huffington Post). “If the … council sets rape and sexual violence in conflict as a priority it will become one and progress will be made. If you do not, this horror will continue.”

“Let us be clear what we are speaking of: Young girls raped and impregnated before their bodies are able to carry a child, causing fistula,” she continued. “Boys held at gunpoint and forced to sexually assault their mothers and sisters. Women raped with bottles, wood branches and knives to cause as much damage as possible. Toddlers and even babies dragged from their homes, and violated.”

“Meet your commitments, debate this issue in your parliaments, mobilize people in your countries, and build it into all your foreign policy efforts,” she urged. “Together, you can turn the tide of global opinion, shatter impunity and finally put an end to this abhorrence.”

Before the meeting, Angelina was spotted giving a hug to Zainab Hawa Bangura, the UN Special Representative on Sexual Violent in Conflict.

FYI: Angelina is wearing Saint Laurent.

    Hahaha I did not give that snake lamey any clicks and here are the ff minions posting her stupid excuses.
    I sometimes keep a watchful eye when “her girl” gp puts her foot in her mouth or soemthing like that… She usually ignores the pictures or articles… Few times she adresses the bad reports and complains that everything is in the name of gossip and that is why she loves her… Hypocrite!
    She KNOWS that writing about the JPs is going to give her hits, and she used to say that she liked them. Now, she just bashes them, every oportunity she gets. Everything (in her articles) is like written from a ff point of view, very snarky. And still I think she really does not mind them, she just wants hits.
    I so much prefer other sites than her. Even Michael K, he is funny, unlike lamey. She WISHES she could write comedy like him.

    @fyi12: it’s not lainey, it’s Sarah from cina something. It’s a movie site but she also writes for Lainey. It’s not jealousy because she was a true fan of the book and was disappointed with the movie. She is Lainey’s movie blogger….she knows what she is talking about. Btw, she is a pitt fan.

    .
    Her spirit and energy is remarkable. And once again she sets a sterling example for her children.

    chunky pipe Says:

    …those crickets didn’t bother to read that movie cost 190 milli to make and 100 milli to market…if I’m correct that equals 290 milli before a ticket was sold…twice that to break even = 580 milli or 600 milli to round up…I don’t make predictions but it seems alot to make up…

    Bringing from other thread:

    I am. Telling you, the haterfictions is very entertaining, I almost figure them out scratching their brains, rubbing their lone neurones and brainstorming at their hate forum thinking of what new thing to come up with. In these years they have already said it all!!

    thelookoflove1365 Says:

    Kudos to Angie for all her hard work. I hope the UN will act not because it’s Angie who is asking them to do something but because it’s the right thing to do. These victims do not have a voice & only through Angie & other volunteers who’s brave & dedicated enough to travel to these remote areas, and serious journalist (very few nowadays) that we hear these stories.
    .
    Congrats to Brad for WWZ success. The whole fam will be watching the movie this weekend.
