Kidman Speaks Out About Violence Towards Women

NICOLE KIDMAN testified before lawmakers at the U.S. Congress on Wednesday (21Oct09) in a bid to prevent violence against woman across the world.
The Moulin Rouge actress raised the issue during a high-powered delegation at a congressional hearing in Washington, D.C.
Kidman made a speech as part of her role as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women during a debate on the International Violence Against Women Act.
She said violence against females is "perhaps the most systematic, widespread human rights violation in the world," before acknowledging: "I am far from an expert, I rely on the people I've met to make the case."
The star also admitted that Hollywood "probably" played a role in contributing to violence, but insists she does all she can to promote positivity: "I can't be responsible for all of Hollywood but I can certainly be responsible for my own career."
