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.

  • Mamie

    That’s it? Angelina didnt look confident or passionate. Sounded like she was just reading a script. She isnt accomplishing anything. PhotoOp for her…

  • maleficent

    @Mamie: What are you talking about? Angelina is not like your idol J Aniston no substance. Angelina is smart & has class,Unlike J Aniston.They are not in the same level. Why do you think Brad fall in love to Angelina?

  • Welp

    @Mamie: yes she did. Angelina is always confident. That’s what’s the sexiest about her. Her confidence and strength as a woman.

  • Julie

    She is showing her terrible acting for U.N.! LOL
    Looks like she was reading a speech that other person wrote for her! She didn’t sound convincing at all!
    She sounds so fake!

  • Goodforher

    Angelina Jolie with her experiences and well-prepared speech and confidence and composure resulted in a resolution speaks volume at the UN, a good start with many more work to come. Irrational childish trolls haters are only pathetic LOL BYE BYE~~

  • @

    @Julie: i’m not fan of any celeb! just gotta say, angie’s words mabe won’t be convencing cause these politician leaders don’t wanna do any great thing, they know the problems but don’t do anything because they take care of their own power first not the peace/ bliss of people in the whole world! on the other hand, it’s great to have someone like angie or anyone else who r trying for better life! they always do something for better world even if it would be a little! angie is really living this life and wish the best for her! come from a hollywierd showbiz bad girl to a great humanitarian big-hearted woman who’s donig great things for people around the world is fantastic and honerable! don’t know how many of us could do this if we were in her shoes !

    Is this the same Angelina Jolie who appeared in a massive Vogue article with Assad’s wife in Syria, praising Mrs Assad for her humanitarian work helping “Palestinian Refugees” (who have lived in Syria since 1948 but are denied citizenship, the right to work, and freedom of movement!). or is that a different Angelina Jolie? Since January 4,500 of those “refugees” have been murdered on the orders of Mrs Assad’s husband.
