ANGELINA Jolie has opened a centre to help combat warzone violence against women.
The 39-year-old actress and former UK foreign secretary William Hague joined forces to announce the new academic centre, titled the Centre on Women, Peace and Security, at the London School of Economics (LSE) yesterday.
The ‘Unbroken’ director – who recently returned from Iraq, where she met millions of refugees left homeless due to Islamic State (ISIS) violence – said, “I am excited at the thought of all the students in years to come who will study in this new centre.
“There is no stable future for a world in which crimes committed against women go unpunished. We need the next generation of educated youth with inquisitive minds and fresh energy, who are willing not only to sit in the classroom but to go out into the field and the courtrooms and to make a decisive difference.”
The centre aims to educate people and raise awareness about the horrific acts which women suffer in warzones and hopes to end exemption from punishment for those who commit rape and sexual violence in war.
Angelina has six children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with husband Brad Pitt. BANG!
