Interesting to see the conference subject line and the expression of Mr. Monti!

Hopefully her star presence will bring much needed attention to this issue of sexual violence against women. We see all those brutal acts against women in the middle east, china, india eatern europe but that is an problem that pragues most if not all societies in the world including our own, here in Japan. It is easy to look at all the articles and say "those barbarians in that part of the world!!" These attacks should not be forgotten nor unpunished. But it should not stop us from seeing and acting against sexual violence that happens right here. Sexual agression and domestic violence is an ongoing problem for all societies!!!

It's a serious problem and, while her leftist political views are a turn-off, it's good that she has taken up this cause.

Jolie should consider leaving her pearls of penitence for a PTA meeting, and for this event pull Lara Croft, Tomb Raider, out of her arsenal.

ironic that at least two Japanese embassy staff have been arrested for domestic violence in Canada and the US in the past few years with one claiming its his cultural heritage.

On a side note, I'm sure Jolie is thankful it's Monti she's working with and not the scumbag Silvio "bunga bunga" Berlusconi.
