Angelina Jolie Made an Honorary Dame by Queen Elizabeth II!

Angelina Jolie can add a new achievement to her already impressive life of work – royal recognition!

The 39-year-old actress has been made an honorary dame by England’s Queen Elizabeth II for her work combating sexual violence in war zones. Angelina will not be able to use the title of “dame” before her name though as she is not a British or Commonwealth citizen.

Previous United States citizens have received honorary knighthoods include director Steven Spielberg, former President Ronald Reagen, and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

“To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to,” Angelina said (via Associated Press). Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.”

FYI: Angelina is wearing Saint Laurent.

    4 Hopeful Outcomes of Global Meeting to End Rape in War
    ================================
    .
    Jun 13, 2014 7:06pm
    .
    Actress Angelina Jolie, senior diplomats from over 100 countries, humanitarian groups and activists from all over the world gathered for the largest-ever global summit on ending sexual violence in war in London this week.
    .
    The four-day meeting closed with Secretary of State John Kerry giving the keynote address. In it he reaffirmed the U.S. commitment to the issue, telling the crowd, “You don’t have to be a woman to advance the cause of justice and advance the cause of women around the world.”
    .
    Rape as a weapon of war is considered a massive problem on a global scale, often a byproduct of the insecurity, poverty and general lawlessness in conflicts and there have been questions as to whether the issue could be boiled down to a single conference. But the organizers, like Jolie, identified four tangible goals and outcomes that can be implemented in the global fight to end these crimes against women, children and men during war.
    .
    1) Call Attention to an Underreported Global Problem: The term of “rape as a weapon of war” is not new, but an actual look at the numbers are staggering, especially considering many rapes go unreported. While hard to quantify fully, the United Nations estimates that tens of thousands of women are raped in conflict areas each year. The places range from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has been called “the rape capital of the world” to countries in Latin America where sexual violence has been used as a weapon as part of the endemic gang warfare. By launching a summit featuring diplomats from some of the world’s most powerful countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom and France, in addition to the Hollywood glamour of superstars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, organizers hope to shine a bright light to the world on what remains a largely hidden problem.
    .
    2) Treat Rape In Conflict as a Crime and Hold Perpetrators Responsible: Participants in the conference wanted to push back against the idea that rape is an inevitable part of conflict; one of the results of the “fog of war,” which makes it nearly impossible to hold individuals responsible. The United Nations estimates that as many as 50,000 women were raped during the Bosnian war in 1992-1995, but there have been fewer than 70 convictions. Much of the meeting was spent developing an international protocol for documenting and investigating sexual violence in conflict.
    .
    For example, the United Kingdom has dispersed a team of experts from a range of different background and skill sets to deploy in and out of conflict areas over the last year including in Libya, Syria and Mali. These teams “have been intentionally going to where stuff is happening or where they are still enduring consequences of sexual violence and conflict” to work with local humanitarian groups and law enforcement to assist in gathering evidence of crimes and also supporting the groups and governments to build better national capacity to handle the problem, a British diplomat confirmed to reporters earlier this week.
    .
    3) Get Governments to Act: Government officials from all of the countries attending the conference have agreed to take steps, including training military forces on ways to prevent sexual violence, by signing protocol statements committing to reinforcing the best practices and ideas identified in combating rape. The summit also encouraged countries to strengthen their local laws to be able prosecute perpetrators more efficiently.
    .
    “One of the most heartening aspects of this summit has been to see so many male leaders… prepared to confront the taboo surrounding sexual violence in conflict,” Angelina Jolie said at the news conference closing the meeting. “This subject is now firmly on the top table of international diplomacy – and we will work to ensure it stays there.”
    .
    4) Give a Voice to The Victims: The thousands of women and children, as well as men who are victims of these horrific crimes every year need to feel like more than just a statistic, activists say. Sexual violence can have very real and sometimes costly consequences. Women and girls who have been gang-raped often face costly medical issues that can financially cripple their families. There is also the issue of stigma and caring for children born out of rape. The United Nations has proposed that victims should receive financial reparations as well as counseling and medical help.
    .
    On Friday the U.S. State Department announced it was contributing an additional $12 million to programs specifically addressing the needs of victims of sexual violence in conflict areas and women and girls in the most vulnerable situations such as refugee camps.
    .
    “We know that survivors often need urgent assistance in order to recover and heal, whether during times of crisis or times of peace,” Secretary Kerry said in his address. ”It’s the same challenge, and it’s labor intensive and we need to support it. We need to make sure that they have that support in whatever moment of time it is and wherever they are in the world.”

    UK sexual violence summit ends on hopeful note
    ===============================
    .

    Updated: 4:01 pm, Fri Jun 13, 2014.
    .
    LONDON (AP) — A conference focusing on rape in conflict zones ended on an upbeat note Friday, with hundreds of participants from Somalia to Kosovo encouraged by an outpouring of international support.
    .
    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told participants it was time to “banish sexual violence to the dark ages and the history books.”
    “We will not tolerate rape as a tactic of war and intimidation,” he said.
    .
    Activists, diplomats and rape survivors left the four-day London summit, co-hosted by actress Angelina Jolie and British Foreign Secretary William Hague, believing they had made progress in better prosecuting offenders and protecting victims — especially those in developing countries and conflict regions.
    .
    Organizers said 155 countries signed a declaration of commitment to end sexual violence in conflict and many, including the U.S. and Britain, pledged funds to support the cause.
    .
    Deeq Mohamed, a Somali delegate, said he came away encouraged by the global support, although he knew there was no easy answer to the scourge of sex crimes in war zones.
    .
    “You see all the people around the world here and you realize you’re not alone anymore,” he said. “Everybody is making their little difference, and that can make a big change.”
    Jolie, a U.N. special envoy, arrived Friday with partner Brad Pitt.
    .
    “I believe that one of the outcomes of this summit is that this subject is now firmly on the top table of international diplomacy,” the actress said. “And we will work to ensure that it stays there.”
    .
    Kerry’s keynote speech Friday ended with a rousing recital of Maya Angelou’s poem “Still I Rise.” He said Angelou, who recently died, was a rape victim herself who chose to speak out and inspire others.
    .
    “We came here to send a message: We rise, we rise . Let’s get the job done,” Kerry said, prompting a standing ovation.

    The Queen makes Angelina Jolie an honorary dame for campaigning against wartime rape
    =================================
    By Kyle Johnson, 6/13/2014
    .
    Queen Elizabeth II made Angelina Jolie an honorary dame for her international campaign against wartime rape.
    While celebrating her birthday, the Queen awarded the Oscar winner the honorary title as Jolie is in London holding a summit with foreign secretary William Hague pushing to fight against war rape, reports The Guardian. Since Jolie is not a member of the Commonwealth, the title is merely honorary.
    .
    “To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life too,” Jolie said. “Working on PSVI (Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative) and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself.”
    .
    The summit, which went for four days, examined sexual violence during war and looked at finding better methods for increasing investigations and punishments for offenders, according to The Washington Post. “We refuse to believe that this is too big to defeat,” Secretary of State John F. Kerry said.
    .
    The PSVI summit was attended by hundreds of lawyers, activists, diplomats and others.
    Jolie and Hague submitted a manual they would like to see implemented, which contains ways to investigate rape allegations, including what to ask during an interview and the proper way to store evidence.
