Angelina Jolie is one of the most staunch figures in Hollywood. She is a humanitarian and a distinguished recipient of an Academy Award and three Golden Globe Awards and she has been dubbed as Hollywood’s highest-paid actor multiple times. However, apart from her performances, Jolie is also also known for her humanitarian efforts and she promotes various causes including, conservation, education, and women’s rights.
However, she does not seem to be doing well in her personal life owing to her relationships, marriages and health issues. She is divorced from actors Jonny Lee Miller, Billy Bob Thornton, and Brad Pitt.

Now, a touching speech by Jolie, which she delivered on February 09, 2022, has been going viral on social media. In her speech, she touched on the issue of domestic violence where she urged the US Senate to vote in the favour of renewing the Violence Against Women Act.
In the video shared by the Twitter user @liliandaisies, and the caption read: “this speech by angelina jolie about domestic violence and child abuse is so powerful. and she and her children are among the millions of victims and survivors who had to suffer abuse in silence.”
As Angelina said, “The reason that many people struggle to leave abusive situations is that they’ve been made to feel worthless,” kind of sums up the trials and tribulations of almost every victim of domestic violence and abusive relationships.
Her statement from the speech, “Ugly truth is violence in homes is normalized in our country,” sounds true for almost any country.
