Angelina Jolie Says Sexual Violence Is 'the Silent Killer' and 'A Crime Against Humanity'


The 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' actress joined anti-sexual violence activists from all over the world at Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict which is held in London.

Angelina Jolie 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 Angelina, are Julienne Lusenge, Jineth Bedoya, Zainab Bangura, Suraya Pakzad, and Whaku Shee.

In an interview with the magazine, Angelina talked about sexual violence in many countries she had travelled to, saying, "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."

Angelina commented on her group which includes the five leaders, "We care for each other-and for each other's children. It is a profound source of joy and inspiration." One of the leaders, Zainab, praised Angelina, "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."

The "Maleficent" actress told the magazine about the importance of battling against sexual violence, "This is not a woman problem. It's a crime against humanity."
