Hollywood star Angelina Jolie gives advice to everyone who faces violence and is afraid to be in danger for the holidays – keep close access to emergency services.
Angelina Jolie has always been passionate when it comes to social awareness, especially as part of her work for the UN Human Rights Campaign. She is currently promoting the UN 16 Days of Activism mission to prevent and end violence against women and girls. In an interview with Harper`s Bazaar UK, Jolie gave advice not only to women – everyone who fears abuse and violence during holidays, especially when families are locked in their homes and no one knows what is really going on. “Talk to somebody. Try to find allies,” she said.
“Keep in touch with the emergency services, if possible. You can also coordinate a code word with a friend or family member who will let them know you’re facing an emergency. Start creating a network and gain knowledge,” said Angelina Jolie.
“It’s sad, but you can’t assume that all your friends and family will always trust and support you. Strangers often help you. Or other victims, support groups or religious groups,” the actress also says.
