Angelina Jolie today made her debut before the United Nation’s most important body as a special envoy for refugees and urged the world’s nations to make the fight against rape in war ravaged countries a top priority.

 

In the Security Council meeting held today she said, “hundreds of thousands — if not millions — of women, children and men have been raped in conflicts in our lifetimes.” She further pointed out  that, “the world has yet to take up warzone rape as a serious priority.”

“You set the bar,” she also told the Security Council “If the … council sets rape and sexual violence in conflict as a priority it will become one and progress will be made. If you do not, this horror will continue.”
