Nicole Kidman Stands Up For Women Everywhere


nicole_kidmanNicole Kidman is a goodwill ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women. She used her position as such to speak out against violence against women everywhere.

She spoke to congress during the “International Violence Against Women: Stories and Solutions” hearing in Washington D.C on Tuesday.

She told Congress: Violence against women is not prosecuted because it is not a top government and urgent social priority. We can change this, [They] need and deserve our support. Not with a box of band aids but with a comprehensive, well-funded approach that acknowledges that women’s rights are human rights.”

I agree. As a once battered woman I think it’s important that there be some sort of change. I hope she is able to teach Sunday Rose to be a strong girl that will stand up for herself.
