Brad Pitt turned up to support other half Angelina Jolie earlier today, as she attended day three of the Global Summit To End Sexual Violence in Conflict, taking place in London.
The Maleficent star and Foreign Secretary William Hague will address the heads of eight United Nations agencies, approximately 1,000 experts and 100 representatives from countries around the globe at the Summit, with the last conference taking place tomorrow at the ExCel.
Hollywood star Angelina kicked off the conference on Tuesday and she said, as part of her speech: “It is a myth that rape is an inevitable part of conflict.”
“There is nothing inevitable about it. It is a weapon of war aimed at civilians. It is nothing to do with sex, everything to do with power. It is done to torture and humiliate innocent people and often very young children. I have met survivors from Afghanistan to Somalia and they are just like us, with one crucial difference: we live in safe countries with doctors we can go to when we are hurt, police we can turn to when we are wronged, and institutions that protect us,” the mother-of-six continued.
