She is an Oscar winning actress, a political campaigner and now the Actress is all set to be a lecturer at The London School of Economics.
The Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has been appointed a visiting professor at the London School of Economics (LSE), one of Britain’s most prestigious universities. She will join former foreign secretary William Hague as a lecturer at the university’s Centre for Women, Peace and Security where she will help to teach students studying for a Master’s degree.
LSE said Jolie Pitt will join fellows and activists in “developing strategies to promote gender equality and enhance women’s economic, social and political participation and security.”
She said: “I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s programme.”
“I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict. I am looking forward to teaching and to learning from the students as well as to sharing my own experiences of working alongside governments and the United Nations.”
During the course of her stay with the institution, Jolie is expected to deliver guest lectures and partake in workshops and university events.
