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

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.”

    The Guardian Angels: Angelina Jolie and the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict
    ============================================
    .
    9th July 2014,by Mariane Pearl
    .

    For years, rape has been accepted as a consequence of war. But if Angelina Jolie and a group of ferociously passionate leaders from all over the world have their way, that ends now.
    .
    MEET THE WARRIORS: From left, Julienne Lusenge, Jineth Bedoya, Zainab Bangura, Angelina Jolie, Suraya Pakzad, and Whaku Shee. Photographed at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London.
    .
    I first met Angelina Jolie through the diaries she wrote after her visits to refugee camps. I read them online, and even then—long before we became friends and watched our toddlers jumping on hotel beds together—I was fascinated by Angelina’s attention to detail and her will to understand infinitely complex situations. She has traveled to more than 40 countries with the United Nations, spent untold hours reading about international justice, and come back with the horrific stories of what women undergo when the men in their countries wage war.

    .
    “Everywhere I went,” Angelina told me, “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.”
    .
    Indeed, violating and torturing women, girls, toddlers, or the elderly is used as a free and efficient weapon of mass destruction—in fact, in many conflict-ridden countries, it is more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier. One study found that, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, for example, 48 women are raped every hour, and in still other countries, like Colombia, the crimes go undocumented, the women uncounted.
    .
    So today I am incredibly moved but not the least bit surprised to see Angelina prompting the world to recognize the systematic destruction of women. This past June, in her role as Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, she joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague in London to cochair the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, a gathering of thousands of people from 123 countries and more than 70 foreign ministers working to crack the fortress of silence and denial surrounding rape in war zones.
    .
    “Thanks to women like Zainab Bangura and Angelina Jolie, we’re forcing the world to stop looking away—and to recognize that sexual violence is a vile crime against humanity, not an inevitable by-product of war.”—John Kerry, United States Secretary of State
    .
    Angelina knew many of the women there already from her work in the field. There were mavericks like Julienne Lusenge, one of the first women to publicly denounce the epidemic of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
    .
    (She began her campaign of truth by walking into the local radio station and seizing the microphone.) Journalist Jineth Bedoya, who was kidnapped, tortured, and raped while investigating arms trafficking in Colombia but who continues to report on the political violence there. (“I felt like a statistic.

    .
    I am doing this so that those who come after me can have a face,” she says.) Zainab Bangura, who began as a grassroots organizer in Sierra Leone and who now, as a representative to the United Nations, campaigns to classify rape as a war crime. Suraya Pakzad, who, under the Taliban regime in her native Afghanistan, dared to educate girls illegally in her house and founded the Voice of Women Organization there. And Whaku Shee, who is working with the Women’s League of Burma to help prevent the military from raping Burmese ethnic minorities.
    .
    “We care for each other—and for each other’s children,” says Angelina. “It is a profound source of joy and inspiration.” The feeling of kinship and solidarity is mutual: “I have never seen anybody so committed,” Zainab says of Angelina. “I have been with her at the United Nations. I have walked with her in the Congo. She understands the issues very well, but more important, she listens.”
    .
    Together, these six matchsticks of awareness—along with so many others like them—are building a bonfire of international indignation. At the summit more than 200 experts wrote an international protocol, the first of its kind, designed to help bring perpetrators to justice and rehabilitate victims, who are often rejected by their communities after an assault.
    .
    The document was written by women alongside men—a powerful fact because, as Angelina says, “this is not a woman problem. It’s a crime against humanity.”
    .
    It’s this understanding and commitment that makes me admire Angelina so much. She and these brave women are role models for a better world. Each is an agent of change, doing her piece to end an unbearable situation. Because, after all, this is a crime against humanity that only humanity can fix.

    ‘It’s a source of joy’: Angelina Jolie opens up to friend Mariane Pearl about the camaraderie she feels with fellow activists
    =============================================
    .
    By Heidi Parker Published: 17:25, 9 July 2014 | Updated: 17:32, 9 July 2014

    .
    She’s a mega movie star whose film Maleficent is expected to take in $1 billion worldwide.
    .
    But instead of hanging out with fellow A-listers at the Chateau Marmont, Angelina Jolie chooses to spend her down time with female activists, which she talked about to friend Mariane Pearl, 46 – who she played in the 2007 film A Mighty Heart – for the August issue of Glamour.
    .
    ‘We care for each other – and for each other’s children. It is a profound source of joy and inspiration,’ the 39-year-old fiancée of Brad Pitt told the monthly magazine about her non-Hollywood pals.
    .
    The mother of six posed with a group of female activists for the Glamour Women column titled The Guardian Angels.
    They included Julienne Lusenge, Jineth Bedoys, Zainab Bangura, Suraya Pakzad and Whaku Shee.
    The photo was taken in June in London during the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence In Conflict in London. Pitt was with her as well but not in the group photo.
    .
    She was seen at times crying over women’s testimonies about rape during war during the three day event.
    For the Glamour interview, Pearl focused on Jolie’s efforts to ‘prompt the world to recognize the systematic destruction of women.’
    Jolie said, ‘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.’
    .
    Also in the August issue, which is on newsstands nationwide on July 15 and has Katie Holmes on its cover, the Tomb Raider actress said, ‘[T]his is not a woman problem. It’s a crime against humanity.’
    .
    The article comes out the same week shocking images of the Oscar winner emerged from a videotape, take in the late nineties, of the star appearing out of it while living in New York City. Though Jolie has always been open about her past drugs use, the photos still drew much attention.
    .
    With blonde hair and wearing a tight black dress, the Original Sin star can be seen rambling on the phone and looking almost crazed with dark circles under her eyes.
    .
    Angelina has a busy year ahead of her. In August she will travel to Malta with Brad to film a movie together. The project has been described as ‘indie’ but not many details have been shared yet.
    .
    In the fall she will start promoting her directorial effort Unbroken, which comes out over the Christmas holiday and has been talked up for Oscar nominations. The drama is about the life of WWII POW survivor Louis Zamperini, who passed away on July 2.
    .
    Long before that, however, the beauty will help her twins Vivienne and Knox ring in their sixth birthday on Saturday.
    .

    Angelina Jolie ‘drugs video’ reaction: As fans rush to defend star is it right to revisit Hollywood demons?

    • By Zoe Shenton
    As old video emerges showing the Hollywood star after she allegedly took drugs, fans take to Twitter to say she’s an inspiration for managing to turn her life around

    Angelina Jolie one of the most successful women in Hollywood and just last month was made an honorary dame for her anti-rape campaign.
    She’s also never made a secret of her haunting past.
    In 2011 she said: “I went through heavier, darker times and I survived them. I didn’t die young, so I’m very lucky. There are other artists and people who didn’t survive certain things.
    15 years after the event, is it right to dig it up?
    While some expressed shock at seeing the video, more fans quickly came to her defence saying she’s the perfect example of someone who has turned their life around completely and is an inspiration.
    “That video of Angelina Jolie is shocking,” one wrote.
    “Why have they released a video of angelina jolie now? everyone knows it’s old news.”
    Fleet Street Fox posted: “The Angelina-on-drugs-video is mildly shocking, but it was FIFTEEN years ago.”

    “Seen them pics of Angelina Jolie in the paper today, video stills of her on drugs years ago, scarey [sic],” another wrote.
    Another commented: “She’s a wonderful example of someone who has turned their life completely around and is now using her past mistakes to help others.”
    “Everyone has bad stages in life, and now look at her… One of the most beautiful, successful actresses in the world, with the most beautiful family and happy life. She is more than awesome and hugely inspiring.”

    “That’s why I’m laughing that the troll posted the link. DM says she’s “wild eyed”…and then post pix where her pupils aren’t even dilated. That’s just dumb. And you can see her arms in most pix. Where are all the track marks the drug dealer said she had? ”
    ——–
    You are right and a very good observation. Angelina was not “High” in the video and there are one photo where we can see her pupils are normal. i´, talking about the black in the center of the eye.
    http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/07/08/article-2684786-1F7B8C2B00000578-871_634x476.jpg
    Any person that have experienced Heroine or know the effects know that Heroine make the pupil very small, almost invisible, the pupil become a very small black point in the center of the eye. other very visible effects it´s the sleepiness and relax movements and in the video Angie is not calm, one more effect, visible for a outsider is the constant scratch of the skin, not in a obsessive form but in a unconscious and pleasurable way.
    Nothing is visible in the video, probably because it was filmed before any action related with drugs. But it´s interesting that nothing in the video show a little thing about drugs. this is old, we know this dealer have other clips where a girl is smoking Heroine and Angelina is talking next to her but AGAIN Angelina was not filmed doing drugs, it´s very strange that the dealer was able to film everything but the real thing, nothing. And we know that it was during the time she was in NY that she lived a hard time but it was a short period and she get out in time without needing to go to rehab like others actors.
    The true is that this video was out 5,6,7 years ago and some gossip mag republished this video from time to time, like it is something new. it is not.
    The fact that she is talking about family issues and she is stressed and worried and trying to solve a domestic problem make Angelina even more loving and compassionate.
    This kind of things will backfire and the Angelina haters are learning that overcoming her wild past is what make Angelina even more loved by the world.
    Nothing knew but with this kind of attacks Angelina is getting more and more admiration and respect by the people from all parts of the world.
    Ps. with all the bad things she did in NY Angelina was able to make a movie (hell kitchen) and get the Directors degree in NY college.

    Phool:

    I replied back on Monday afternoon on the Malta thread. You must have missed my post. You went through the steps to unhide the system files and all you see in the local folder is Temp? If so, then you need to go back to the instructions for unhiding system files and make sure you’ve deselected all of the “HIDE…” boxes and selected the radio button SHOW HIDDEN FILES, FOLDERS AND DRIVES. When you’re done it should look like the image below…

    Some parts of media want to smear Dame Angelina, because she getting the title of Dame.

    Over and Over again they bring up her past because they cannot except her success.

  • Angelina new thread

    God bless her and all who stand up and speak out about this issue.
    .

I’m trying to secure it now so I don’t face the same problems again.I’m posting now on a new e-mail address, thank god its accepted my original moniker its wasn’t previously , had tried posting in”LOL” which it did, then its allowed me to go back to my normal moniker. I had remembered bits and parts of PT’s mail to you so was going on that memory LOL.

  • bap

    There are those out there that find Dame Angelina to powerful, would like to turn the public against her.

  • Jolie is an inspiration

    We don’t like our gods to be human.

    We like them to be astonishingly beautiful, like David Gandy or Brad Pitt. We like them not to have wobbly bits.

    We like them to be morally perfect, like Kylie, or morally fascinating, like Madonna.

    More than anything else they must be above all the flaws and normalcy of our own lives. No farting, no zits, no underarm hair.

    Julia Roberts, we are talking to you.

    There’s a reason they’re stars, which is we think they’re above us in some way. In fact they’re in a similar orbit to our own, and we lack the perspective to see them properly.

    Which is, no doubt, why half the world’s gone bonkers because a video has surfaced of Angelina Jolie pacing and rambling on the phone after allegedly taking drugs.

    Her hair is greasy, her skeleton is barely covered by the skin, in a dingy, barely-furnished apartment. There aren’t bags under her eyes so much as half of Terminal 5 during a baggage handlers’ strike.

    It’s a long way from the glossy, sleek, cat-like glamourpuss who prowls the red carpet at premieres.

    The video was shot by a convicted drug dealer who says he supplied Angelina with heroin and cocaine for years. He says she scored just before the video began, and she let him film her.

    She’s talking to her dad Jon Voight about money, and she’s not making much sense . Then again, almost everyone in Hollywood speaks absolute drivel so it’s not necessarily evidence of being stoned.

    I don’t particularly like Angelina, mainly because Brad broke up with Jen at around the same time I broke up with my ex-husband and I am Team Jennifer to this day.

    I don’t much like her films and I don’t really approve of her snaffling children from all over the world when she’d do better to educate them and others in their home countries.

    But COME ON. Open your eyes – this video isn’t shocking in any way, shape or form.

    First off, Angelina has admitted her troubled, drug-addled past. She’s been completely open about it, and a few seconds on Google will tell you all about the problems she’s had with her dad, her mother’s early death, her troubled teens, self-harm, bad boyfriends and Billy Bob Thornton.

    We know about all that. Seeing evidence of it is interesting, perhaps, but not surprising.

    Secondly, this video was taken FIFTEEN years ago. She was 24.

    She is now 39 and a mother of six. She is in a stable relationship with Brad Pitt, and she’s just had major surgery that has lengthened her life and probably those of millions of other women who took strength from her actions.

    There are dozens of awards on her mantelpiece, she’s a United Nations special envoy, and was named Hollywood’s highest-paid actress last year.

    That is a hell of a list of achievements for anyone. To have racked them up in the space of a mere 15 years is, frankly, astonishing.

    This video isn’t shocking, or sad, or awful. It should be an inspiration to the rest of us.

    When I was 24 I didn’t even have a grungy flat like hers. I was sleeping on someone else’s floor while doing night shifts all over Fleet Street, eating pasta surprise when I remembered and ruining my body clock.

    In the years since there’s been a marriage, a divorce, and slightly more pay.

    But incredibly beautiful men have conspicuously failed to fall at my feet and the UN has been unable to utilise my ability to pick a fight wherever I go.

    What have YOU done since you were 24?

    I’ll bet most of us did it from a standing start – from the position of having relatively healthy minds and bodies. Angelina did it without that, from a long way behind the rest of the field.

    Today she’s seen as an impossibly beautiful woman with a perfect life, someone who can stop her own cancer, hold on to Brad Pitt and wield immense personal wealth and power.

    That’s all guff, of course – she’s a human being, who farts and has underarm hair and goes to the toilet same as the rest of us. As does Brad, come to that.

    But the fact she has done all those things despite having once been a stoned 24-year-old who trusted a drug dealer is what we ought to praise her for.

    Anyone who moans their life isn’t going well should be shown this video, then Angelina’s Wikipedia entry, be given a clip round the ear and told to pull themselves together because it shows anything is possible.

    Most stars are nothing more than a load of flaming gas.

    Angelina Jolie, for all her flaws, has made her own star. She’s stable, sane, and alive. She’s not done bad.

    This video should get her a round of applause, not scorn or disapproval.

    And if she’d just eat some cake and pick her nose in public she’d be the kind of goddess we’d all be happy to worship.

    LET ME QUOTE DAME ANGELINA FROM MALEFICENT “THERE IS AN EVIL IN THIS WORLD”.

  • after the photo

    angalezzie hit on both of them

  • Passing Through

    Lemme see if I have this straight – In the same issue that Katie Holmes decided to pose shirtless and attempt to convince the world she’s sexy Glamour has a story on Angie’s PSVI conference? Seems kind of hypocritical to me. It’s apples and oranges, but at the same time the constant sexualization of women in the west is used by militant Muslims to excuse their violent actions and repression fo women in their own countries.

  • Annophrie

    Annie, really proud of you. Keep up your good work.

  • Passing Through

    Oh look…the Glamour article was written by Mariane Pearl. You know…the woman Tammy spent a week trying to convince us that Angie was no longer friends with. LOL! Biitch’ll never learn…

  • Saffron

    OT

    Lol…Guy Ritchie just had his 3rd child with his fiance. I didn’t know he had two others. Good for him, he moved on quickly & happily and without playing a victim.
