Short, sweet and to the point ~ our leaders are failing the women and girls of the world. Kudos!

i had forgotten that actress Angelina Jolie is part of the UN and in here, in the video, appears in her capacity as a U.N. ambassador.

Wonderful, short and to the point speech. Have a listen in the visit site.

Ty, Beverly.
