Angelina Jolie visits the White House to denounce sexist violence
One day after holding meetings in the US Congress, Jolie came to the White House to meet with some officials of the President’s Government Joe biden and he took the opportunity to visit the press room and make brief statements to journalists.
“What is happening is a health crisis”, said the Hollywood star, who serves as a special envoy for Unhcr, the UN Refugee Agency, and has led various campaigns against the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.
Jolie stressed the need to “invest” more efforts in education and prevention, to foster the development of “healthy families” and to tackle violence against women and children.
The actress was scheduled to meet this Wednesday with senior White House officials, representatives of the Justice Department and with the republican senator Joni ernst to, among other things, promote the re-entry into force of a law against sexist violence.
That legislation, known in English by its acronym, VAWA, began to be implemented in 1994 and from time to time the US Congress endorsed it again, in addition to expanding protections for certain groups, such as same-sex couples or some undocumented immigrants.
However, in April 2019, under the Republican Administration Donald trump (2017-2021), the norm ceased to be in force because the conservatives refused to include protections for transgender people and did not want to support a provision that prohibited acquiring firearms to those convicted of a crime of gender violence.
In March of this year, the Democratic majority of the House of Representatives voted in favor of the entry into force of the law, but the matter has been stalled in the Senate due to the blockade of the Republicans.
In addition to promoting this issue, Jolie planned to ask this Wednesday for “reforms in the FBI“To expand” judicial training “on sexist violence and to work for greater” equality in access to health “for victims of this scourge, explained a spokesperson for the actress.
Specifically, the actress claims a collection and analysis “unbiased from forensic evidence” in cases of sexist or vicarious violence, the spokesperson added.
The spokeswoman for the White House, Jen Psakihe said in a tweet that he had met with “the tireless and committed“Jolie and that he had spoken with her about the need to pass the aforementioned law and to” continue fighting for women, children and families around the world. “
In her statements to reporters, Jolie claimed to be “encouraged“for the meetings he held on Tuesday with several senators, including the Democratic leader Chuck schumer, on the possibility of a new law being passed.
In addition to affecting a third of American women at some point in their lives, gender-based violence in USA has a nefarious ally in firearms: an average of 53 women die every month shot to death by their partner, according to the pro-gun control organization Everytown.
However, official data on sexist violence in USA they are rare and often reported as abuse “domestic“, something that hides the fact that 4 out of 5 victims are women.
