“I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve been to Pakistan many times,” she previously shared.
“I am absolutely with you in pushing the international community to do more. I feel like we say that a lot of times … we talk about cries for help, relief and support, but that’s something very, very different,” she added.
She concluded: “Make governments realize that the lack of fair trade, rising emissions and failure to resolve conflict are causing more death and suffering for millions of families around the world.”
“I think this is a real wake-up call to the world about where we are,” she told a meeting of civilian and military officials in the capital Islamabad.

“Women don’t need their morals policed, their minds re-educated, or their bodies controlled. They need the freedom to live and breathe without violence or threats,’ Jolie, 47, continued.
“To Iranian women, we see you #WomanLifeFreedom #MahsaAmini,” Jolie added.
Iranian women burn their hijab or cut their hair in protest.
