Angelina Jolie is her children’s mentor in more ways than one. Jolie helped her daughter Shiloh get into modeling, and now she’s helping her daughter Zahara with political change. In particular, Jolie and Zahara decided to help drive change with the Violence Against Women Act.

On December 17, Jolie posted a series of photos captioned: “Honored to visit Washington, DC, with Zahara, working with attorneys and lawmakers to modernize and empower the #ViolenceAgainstWomenAct to protect the health and safety of children, communities of color, tribes, LGBTQ survivors, rural areas and all survivors.”

The advocate and director said: “We need reforms including judicial training, trauma-informed court processes that minimize the risk of harm to children, grant programs for technology to detect bruises on all skin tones, and create non-biased forensics. evidence gathering, and protection for the most vulnerable.”

She then finished with how to learn more: “To learn more about VAWA re-authorization and why security can’t wait, visit: www.4vawa.org (link in bio) and encourage senators to #VAWA4ALL co-sponsor and support.”

Violence against women is a serious international problem, with the World Health Organization finding that nearly one in three, or 30%, of women have experienced violence by an intimate partner or non-partner.

It’s great when A-listers bring awareness of these issues to the mainstream, and in Jolie’s case, actually work on the sidelines to bring about more positive change.

In 2018, Jolie spoke to the BBC about moving into politics, saying: “I will really do what I think can really make a change.” Since 2001, she has served more than 60 missions with the UN Refugee Agency, is a UN Ambassador to Children, and even co-wrote a book for children about knowing their human rights – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

It’s also great that Zahara is participating. Maybe she’s going into politics like her mother? We can’t wait to see it.
