Making her way to the nation’s capital to raise awareness on important matters,  Nicole Kidman spoke during the International Violence Against Women: Stories and Solutions hearing at Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, DC on Wednesday (October 21).

The “Eyes Wide Shut” actress added a little star power to a delegation which testified before the US House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee about dealing with International Organizations, Human Rights and Oversight.

“These champions need and deserve our support. Not with a box of band aids but with a comprehensive, well-funded approach that acknowledges that women’s rights are human rights,” Nicole said to the panel of Subcommittee members.

At the current time, Congress is in the midst of deciding whether or not to vote in favor of the International Violence Against Women Act.
