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.

Also another thing really big big is wwz being opend close to 70 I mean the haters having a serious hard time…. it actually did excellent. Brad is the man he did it in the middle of high competion and no one expected it will bit mos. :surprise:
I was hopping we see the brad and the kids pics per fyi? I think was tlked about it. I thouht at least at jjb but it seems not well at least angie is here doing her thing. so may another time….
again and again Congrats brad director and cast and crew. Espeically Brad our guy hit it!! Thankyou God!

what I don’t understand is you quote those fools here who cares what they said theywant it to fail but it actually out done … so why quote them and care what they got to say now or in furture time… you people promoting haters as if they saying something good.

there’s a twinkle in Angie’s eyes when off the horrid subject and I suspect that is because of what occurred for Brad over the weekend. She will be ecstatic for him…….cause that’s how she rolls.

and does anyone notice how good Angie looked here? beauty indeed.

oh before I forgot I may go to go see wwz again with people I met at work. I will say if I noticed new things hopefully thrusday

Lainey is a bias B,.tch!!
MOS has a poor RT score, lower metacritic score than WWZ and yet she was all praise on this movie just because she had a hot on that new superman. Why didn’t she mention the 65 % drop of MOS last weekend. making it uncertain of reaching 300 million which every one was predicting, they were even predciting it would end up as high as Iron man.

And lets wait for her prediction on Lone ranger, she was quite a fan of Depp.

ok one more and night… looking the pics they choosed and all… how beautiful hair brad has seriously thinking he is a man and he is close to closing old decade and about…
He looks great and he defiently should be sexiest man alive first contender this year… but i know he is not in that anymore for long now it seems…

@lulu: pls pls don’t give those twits ( bad saying one woman to antoeher but they deserve it ) attetnion why you even go read and worse discuss them here and give them what they want. They fail. they want jps in the way only they can use them other wise they are out there to get them. But the public disagree’s and good summer movie did as it should… end of story.

yes,dawne,am seeing those twinkle on poppa pitt baby momma.its the winning game of her other half.sucked it,trollz.

@Dawne: I bet that is what happen lol you know all the love making driking wine and happy congrats to him :) I know I know talking a troll fan but it is about so…

@susan 101:

er Angelina became a breakout international star with GIA since it was about true story about a supermodel and at the time of filming supermodels were IT. Fashion, film & music came together with that movie as well as critical acclaim/awards for Angelina which in itself gets you international press. Second: Girl, Interrupted. Everything from the moment she was cast all the way up to her receiving an Academy Award for her performance gave her international visibility. Third: Lara Croft : Tomb Raider this really put her and has kept her an internationally known actress. All of this in addition to Angelina being so stunning (atypical of what a Hollywood actress usually looked like around this time) and blunt speaking has made her an international darling. so please have a seat……
**********************

Also, here in USA, all men considered her a sex symbol, long before Brad came into her life. So she was receiving all these acting awards and men found her sexy. BBT, to me was a dirty old man because he got Angie when he knew men saw her as a sex symbol. I have always liked her boldness and admired her talent. She is bold, yet with a kind heart. She has a kindness that a lot of other actresses do not convey. So Angie has always been a big star. She does not use PR agents. So some people did not realize how much the public liked her, because she never played the PR game.

Angelina is Angelina and Audrey Hepburn is Audrey.. nobody is comparing the two except the DESPERATE LOSERS HAG like YOU specially poster #107 who’s the one brougth out the Audrey hepburn vs. Angelina … YOU loonifers are a bunch of low lifes

@Joe: Shut up,you stupid moron.Why don’t you educate yourself on what Angelina has done the past decade.Audrey Hepburn,if she were still alive would be sooo proud of Angie knowing that what she started would be carried on by Angie.And Angie did more than that.So yes,Angie filled those shoes and more than enough to overflow.

all TICKY’s fan are delusional .. Angelina Jolie had already an OSCAR and several acting awards and already an international movie star before Brad. It’s their idol who use Brad Pitt in order to make it into the movie.. if she did not married Brad Pitt she will have the same route as the rest of the FRIEND’s cast… into oblivion!!

Brad Pitt’s World War Z smashes competition at the local box office

THE Australian box-office has been overrun by zombies.

A very strong opening weekend saw the horror-action blockbuster World War Z easily wrest the number-one position from previous holder Fast &Furious 6.

Proving that there still plenty of life left in the dead-men-walking genre, World War Z grossed over $6 million against some hot new-release competition in Australian cinemas.

Brad Pitt’s recent promotional visit Down Under certainly paid dividends for the American star, resulting in his highest-ever opening in the Australian market.

@Jen The HAG:
I also think they (Audy and AJ would be friendly, and probably vocal about each other’s work).
It is only the haters trying to create controversy where there is none.

Remarkable speech, and she spoke with a lot of confidence.That’s Angelina Jolie!!!

What a beautiful woman and a classy person, god bless mr.&mrs.Brad and Angie Jolie Pitt hooray xoxo

Sorry, Audrey, misspelling

Angie’s rarity involves her acting and directing talent, her stand alone beauty, her amazingly compassionate heart, her grace, her humility, her real grit and bravery, her iconic independence, her individuality in as sea of sheep, her honesty, her work ethic and organizational skills, her speaking and writing skills, her ongoing quest for political and socio-economic knowledge, her force resting quietly in a body of a model, her tenderness………a physically macho woman with the bearing of royalty.

Angie’s IT factor results from being blessed with an abundance of admirable traits and talents………all used wisely and appropriately. The sex symbol who never shows gratuitous skin is just one minor example.

One lunatic spamming the page, it is seriously mental.

@marina:

Exactly. Audrey didn’t start doing humanitarian work until later in her life. Angie started in her late 20s. I am not saying Angie is better because she will eventually did it longer than Audrey. They are both different and yet the same because both have great heart and desire to help others. Both are great humanitarians.

Indispensable Angelina,
.
“What generally tips countries on the fence is a kind of of peer pressure. That’s where Angelina Jolie comes in. When she speaks at the Security Council, more than just the usual UN-watchers take notice. Her speech concluded only a couple of hours ago and there are already hundreds of news articles about her remarks, syndicated through the wires. This is awareness raising in action. And it can have real-world consequences for the global fight against sexual violence in armed conflict.
.
.
Angelina, you are a phenom. So eloquent and right on point.
.
Thank you for being a voice to those who are crying out asking for help to stop the violence.
.
God bless you, sweet lady. And our Bradley for all you do to help so many.
