ANGELINA JOLIE SAYS GENDER EQUALITY IS THE SECRET TO WORLD PEACE

Angelina Jolie Says Gender Equality Is the Secret to World Peace

Angelina Jolie: “We are all partners in this life.”

Angelia Jolie is urging the world to support gender equality to promote world peace.

The actress and United Nations special envoy delivered a speech at the UN’s annual meeting for foreign and defence ministers, on Friday, according to the Associated Press.

She warned world leaders they must stop violence against women to end conflicts and they need to involve more women in peacekeeping efforts.

“Women and girls are still the majority of the victims of war,” Jolie said.

She added that they are also the “vast majority” of rape and sexual assault survivors, and make up over half of the world’s refugee population.

Since women are often targeted by violence and used as weapons of war, Jolie said they are key to fighting the problem.

Research shows about 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced either physical and sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner in their lifetime.

She argued women need to be a part of the conversation in order for there to be change.

“Denying half a population representation in peace negotiations or in government is not the route to long-term stability,” Jolie said.

The humanitarian, who has visited Venezuelan, Syrian, and Yemeni refugees as part of her role with Refugee Agency (UNHCR), also took time to address the global refugee crisis and ask countries to work together.

Jolie noted the attacks on schools, hospitals, and people’s homes have left people displaced and without basic resources.

She highlighted that women living in crisis-affected areas are even more vulnerable to experiencing violence. To protect women and girls in conflict zones, Jolie demanded that perpetrators of violence against them be punished.

Jolie concluded her speech by reminding the group of ministers what women can contribute to peacekeeping efforts.

“Think how much more we could achieve with women’s equal participation in all aspects of society: not at the expense of men, but alongside men, because we are all partners in this life,” she said.


Why Global Citizens Should Care:

To end extreme poverty we must promote gender equality
and end violence against women.

When women are protected and empowered, they uplift their families and communities.

In the way that synchronicity works, this just came through my emails, while sending some light into the Shift:

"The core shift that unlocks the power of partnership at the highest level, which is necessary to realize this larger destiny, is a shift into a consciousness of interconnectedness."  (Claire Zammit)

Thank you for shining your Light of Peace and Love, Star Sister  :)

"We are all partners in this life."  

She gets it. :)  She also gets compassion for animals, and love for the planet itself. 

There have always been people who've understood this, in different eras and places around the Earth. With the Shift underway now, I see the rise of 'global sisterhood', women caring for and assisting women around the world, going beyond blame, anger, judgement vibrations toward men - and toward each other - to form support networks that give women (and men, and children) in some of the most challenging situations on the planet courage, inspiration and hope. Also, I see this consciousness movement becoming more and more INclusive, that there are many men opening their hearts and taking a stand to upholds women's freedom of expression and BEing.

On a local and global scale, love and support coming from 'strangers' is a powerful transformer of energies, showing that we are all indeed partners in this life...and I LOVE being a part of this Shift.  :)

Blessings and Love coming back to you Amparo, and All... <3
