Angelina Jolie to 'Glamour': Sexual Violence is a 'Crime Against Humanity'

Angelina Jolie poses with some brave warriors at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London as part of a feature for Glamour‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On sexual violence as a weapon of war: “Everywhere I went, rape was the silent killer. But it became quickly clear to me that these women were not just the collateral damage of war. Rape was a strategic, organized scheme to destroy entire communities.”

On the camaraderie among her fellow activists: “We care for each other–and for each other’s children. It is a profound source of joy and inspiration.”

On the importance of combating sexual violence: “[T]his is not a woman problem. It’s a crime against humanity.”
