As Harper’s Bazaar celebrates its 150th anniversary, Jolie shares her thoughts on women’s rights and our responsibility toward the environment.
Actress and filmmaker Angelina Jolie is known for using her voice to champion human rights causes around the world. Her latest producing project, The Breadwinner, tells the story of an 11-year-old Afghan girl named Parvana who dresses as a boy in order to feed her family in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, where women were not allowed to work or attend school. As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Harper’s Bazaar, Jolie shares her thoughts on women’s rights today and our responsibility toward each other and our environment.
When I was asked to write for this special anniversary edition of Bazaar, I imagined a female reader of the magazine 150 years ago, in 1867. If she’d been able to see us—today’s women—what would she have made of us?

And the photos are simply breathtaking! They were taken by Alexi Lubomirski when he came to Namibia with Angelina this year.
And here is a behind the scenes video from the photoshoot:
Angelina went to the screening of the documentary Human Flow, directed by her friend Ai Weiwei. But she didn’t just attend it, she also introduced the movie and the director. The event was in Beverly Hills, CA and Angie’s daughter Shiloh attended as well.
The event itself was hosted by United Talent Agency (UTA), the same agency that represents Angelina. UTA wrote on their social media “Honored to have clients Angelina Jolie & Ai Weiwei host a screening of @aiww’s moving film about the global refugee crisis #HumanFlow.”
Ai Weiwei is a Chinese artist and activist and Angie has been seen with him several times. The scarf she’s wearing at this event is also designed by Ai himself!
The documentary features 140 minutes and brings up the refugee crisis in 23 countries including France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Afghanistan, Mexico, Turkey, Bangladesh and Kenya. You can view the trailer below as well as Angelina at the event, plus don’t forget to go to Ai’s Facebook page to read more about him and his projects and causes.
This afternoon Thursday, September 14, Angelina participated in a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. We don’t know what the meeting was about but they posed for photos and went in to a private meeting afterwards.
When Angelina and her kids was visiting Africa, she didn’t only attend the World Refugee Day but she and Shiloh did also go to the opening of the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary. People Magazine has an exclusive article and photos from the event and I’m very happy that Angelina takes the time and effort to support animals in need as well. A cause very dear to my heart!
This must be very special for Shiloh who was born in Namibia and she has a cheetah named after her as well! 🙂 And this update works as a magazine alert as well, so if anyone can scan this magazine for us that would be great!
“Her face lit up when she saw the sanctuary for the first time,” a source tells PEOPLE. “The name was a surprise to her and she was beaming. She and her brothers and sisters moved around very quietly as the newly rescued elephants were still settling in.”
“It is a privilege to work with N/a’an ku sê Foundation and be able to contribute to conservation in Namibia,” Jolie said before leaving.
Angelina sent a video message at an event honoring the victims of the Srebrenica genocide on July 11, 2017 in Guildhalls, London, UK. Read part of the speech below as well as the video and some photos has been added to the gallery.
“With them we are. We must never forget. Wherever that hatred does not dispute, violence is only a few steps,” she stressed. Anyone who has visited BiH know that Bosnians tolerant and humane people, warm and open heart, with a wonderful sense of humor. In addition, they are strong, extremely resistant people who have endured genocide and ethnic cleansing and other Defiance spirit, and everything else around them in ruins. Bosnians do not complain. They are humble people. They do not ask for special treatment or attention.
Every year, many victims await identification. Today, on the anniversary of the genocide, are still fresh graves in the cemetery in Potocari. When I think of Srebrenica imagine green hills and wide valley. My mind is turning towards Sarajevo, cafes and cobbled streets of the old town , with the cathedral, minarets and a synagogue. it’s still hard to believe that genocide could happen on European soil, a few hours away from European capitals, throughout our lives. the lesson is that violence in various forms quickly appear if the hatred, intolerance and aggression does not prevent it. And unfortunately, none of these things does not belong to the past. they are deeply rooted in human nature. they are in contradiction of all that pleased in democratic societie.”
