Angelina Jolie believes you have to demand or fight for your rights and protections

Angelina Jolie said in an interview with the Guardian - “I think my mother did a lot to ensure my rights and empower me. But you know, I started working really young to help her pay bills and stuff. And I wasn’t aware of how I deserved to be treated as a young girl and a human being. I didn’t feel I was born with these rights and protections. I felt that these were things you had to demand or fight for, and sometimes be seen as difficult when you do.”

Hi @helpingout , thanks for your submission! In your opinion, what does this quote say about Angelina Jolie’s political views?

It says that Angelina Jolie believes you have to fight for your rights and that they’re not something you receive automatically when you are born. This means you can’t simply rely on the political parties or those in power to give you rights but you have to constantly be proactive about fighting for them instead.

Thank you! The submission was accepted.
