Angelina Jolie visits US Capitol for the reauthorisation of the Violence Against Women Act
Angelina Jolie visited the US Capitol to support the reauthorisation of a bill that was created in response to violence against women. The act, also known as “VAWA,” protects victims and helps perpetrators seek rehabilitation services for their crimes
The recently retired actress trekked through rain with lawmakers from both houses (Senate & House) before being taken inside by staff working at one building along M Street NW – near Union Station DC metro stop where they live out every day lives while serving others around them
Angelina Jolie visited Washington DC this week to show support for the reauthorisation of The Violence Against Women Act.
The act was first introduced in 1994 as a response from then President Clinton, but it has never been reinvestigated or updated since its introduction due largely because most Democrats have thus far opposed any efforts towards addressing Battered-Women’s issues which they say should be addressed separately rather than included within VAWA itself (Violence against women)
Jolie made headlines last year when she became one legal guardian ad litem representing two sisters involved with foster care who were awaiting adoption before becoming reunited at age 12
