Angelina Jolie Calls On NATO To Strengthen Its Protection Of Women's Rights In Powerful Op-Ed

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie continues to champion women's rights abroad.

In a powerful op-ed co-written with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the 42-year-old actress addressed violence against women around the world — arguing it is "often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier." The two went on to pen a suggested plan of action for NATO to tackle this huge problem head on.

The activist wrote in The Guardian:

"Despite being prohibited by international law, sexual violence continues to be employed as a tactic of war in numerous conflicts from Myanmar to Ukraine and Syria to Somalia. It includes mass rape, gang rape, sexual slavery, and rape as a form of torture, ethnic cleansing and terrorism. It accounts in large part for why it is often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier."
