In her words:
"Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely. So I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights. Watching for decades how Afghan refugees - some of the most capable people in the world - are treated like a burden is also sickening. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it. Like others who are committed, I will not turn away. I will continue to look for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me."

Jolie, who starred in the movie “Maleficent” revealed that the family drama has denied her time and concentration, which makes it difficult to commit to her directing aspiration.
That has made the mother of six stick to acting as she tries to balance the Hollywood career and family.
