This woman never stops!!
Angelina Jolie stepped out last night in a strapless black and white gown with long, black gloves — giving off that incredible ‘old Hollywood’ look — to take part in the United Nations Correspondents Association Awards Dinner in New York City.
The actress and activist was joined there by her sons Pax, 14, and Knox, 9, as well as 12-year-old daughter Zahara and 11-year-old daughter Shiloh.
She was being honored at the event as the 2017 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year, and as part of her award, she took the time to speak out about humanitarian work, refugees, and the plight of women and children in countries all over the globe.
You can watch a part of her speech (below):

Guest of honor H.E Mr. Antonio Guterres United Nations Secretary General Honoring 2017 Global citizens of the year, Angelina Jolie special envoy commissioner Refugees. Beauty, brains and compassionate. ├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╝ This woman is just a little proof of the hard work she does on ground with the UNHCR on refugees. The United Nations doesn├óΓé¼Γäót work alone. It needs collective power of the people. @styleandresilience #uncaawards2017 #angelinajolie #refugees #refugeecrisis #humanrights #unca #philanthropy #humanrights #socialimpact #humanityA post shared by Dena Mekawi (@denamekawi) on Dec 15, 2017 at 7:31pm PST
