Angelina Jolie has talked about the importance of battling against sexual violence in an interview and said rape is like a silent killer in a community.
Jolie, 39, and five passionate leaders from all over the world posed together at the Global Summit to end sexual violence in conflict in London for Glamour magazine’s latest issue.
The five world leaders, who worked together with Jolie are Julienne Lusenge, Jineth Bedoya, Zainab Bangura, Suraya Pakzad, and Whaku Shee. “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,” she said.
One of the leaders, Zainab, praised The ‘Maleficent’ star saying, “I have never seen anybody so committed. 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.”
