Jens Stoltenberg said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was not only an alliance providing defence against military threats but also a political alliance based on the core values of democracy, individual liberty, rule of law, and the UN Charter and, therefore, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation had the responsibility of protecting women's rights.
In December, Jolie and Stoltenberg united for an op-ed published in The Guardian, outlining the importance of protecting women and families in war zones, where violence against them is used as a particularly insidious and damaging military tactic.
Jolie, a mother of six who previous year released her film "First They Killed My Father" about Cambodia's Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s, said she had met victims of sexual violence in conflict and was trying to be a voice for them. Statement of Jolie came in after Human Rights Watch accused Myanmar forces to have raped women during operations. Angelina has been increasingly politically active over the last decade, she even did a lecture at the London School of Economics.
