Angelina Jolie Speaks Up for Nigerian Schoolgirls & Human Trafficking Victims (Video)
Angelina Jolie is continuing to speak up in support of the rescue efforts to find the nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria who were kidnapped last month and to make people look at the bigger picture as well.
“I think we should be very happy that the countries — now the U.K. and U.S are stepping up and wanting to support Nigeria on the ground and doing what they can to try to rescue the girls,” the 38-year-old Maleficent actress told ET Online.
“But I think it’s looking at the bigger picture and understanding this epidemic of men thinking that women don’t have the right to have an education and that they feel that they can get away with this kind of behavior, and that it’s fine to just take a woman and sell a woman or abuse a woman or rape a woman,” she continued.
“We have to end this culture of impunity,” Angelina added. “If people are able to get away with these crime then it will continue and it happened because so many times in the past when women have been taken raped and abused and nobody suffers any consequence for it. it is our fault in many ways that we’ve left this situation in such a way that these men feel that’s it’s something that they could do.”
