Angelina Jolie brought some Hollywood glamor to swampy DC on Tuesday.
The star traveled to Capitol Hill to meet with Democratic senators on the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA).
“I am grateful for these timely and valuable meetings with senators, particularly focused on children’s health provisions,” Jolie, 46, said in a statement.
Photos showed the star, a longtime human rights activist, dressed in a chic black skirt suit and matching stiletto heels and mask as she took the Senate subway and walked through the Capitol .
She was also pictured sitting down with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to discuss the law, which expired in 2019.
Jolie recently told the Guardian that she fears for the safety of her children and family when marrying Brad Pitt – and also claimed she was attacked by Harvey Weinstein early in her career.
First signed by President Bill Clinton in 1994, the VAWA provided funds to local and state governments working to tackle violent crimes against women. In March, the House passed legislation to re-authorize the law.
“Thanks to Angelina Jolie for coming today to talk about the fight to re-authorize VAWA in the Senate and how we can help support research into the diagnosis of injuries from domestic violence and child abuse. to help survivors ” Schumer said.
