She just finished promoting her massive new movie “Maleficent” and already Angelina Jolie is on to the next task- ending sex abuse in war zones.

The “Changeling” actress joined William Hague for the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London, England, looking lovely in a cream-colored ensemble.

Hague told the BBC that immediate action is required to address the horrific problem and he’s glad Jolie is on board to raise awareness.

"If anything, this is getting worse - war zone rape as a weapon of war, used systematically and deliberately against civilian populations. What this campaign needs is big powerful governments of the world, like us, with a big diplomatic network and a big development budget to really get involved and take action, as we are. But it also needs people who will be listened to in a different way from governments and speak with their own personal authority and Angelina Jolie brings that.

"She is very committed to this, very knowledgeable about the issues, she has come up with many of the ideas for the campaign. She and I have been working closely on this for the last two years and we will keep doing so."
