Angelina Jolie is no little name star riding around in a CT Limo. This 3 time Golden Globe Award winner tends to put her mark on everything that she puts her hands on and definitely has some major projects soon to come. We can remember Mrs. Jolie Pitt from big name film titles such as Gone in 60 Seconds, Tomb Raider and one of her newer films Maleficient. Did you think she was going to stop there?

Jolie Pitt Strives for a Better Future
“I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s programme. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict,” Jolie Pitt said in a statement. “I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
Melanne Verveer, the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security Ambassador said they, too, are looking forward to bringing the program to the stateside campus.
