Hollywood star Angelina Jolie speaks up for women in Afghanistan
DUBAI: Hollywood star and humanitarian Angelina Jolie this week honored women in Afghanistan, “one year after the fall of the government.”
The 47-year-old actress shared on Instagram an op-ed she wrote for TIME and said: “It cannot end here.”
In the article, the Oscar winner said: “The daughters of Afghanistan are extraordinary for their strength, resilience, and resourcefulness.”
The actress said that one year ago, Afghan women worked in all fields — being doctors, teachers, police officers and politicians.
“To my Afghan friends, I have faith in you and your resilience and your strength,” wrote Jolie. “I dream of visiting with my daughters, making friends, traveling around your beautiful country, and seeing you free to determine your own future … I know it’s possible. This does not end here.”
