Amal Clooney Weighs in on the MeToo Movement, and Seeking Justice for Women Around the World

From VOGUE authored by Bridget Read:

“At the 2015 Golden Globes, Tina Fey introduced George Clooney, that night receiving a lifetime achievement award, by detailing the achievements of his wife, Amal, instead. “Amal is a human rights lawyer who worked on the Enron case, was an adviser to Kofi Annan regarding Syria, and was selected for a three-person U.N. commission…So tonight her husband is getting a lifetime-achievement award.” That’s a typical punchline for the power couple, one that underscores how Amal Clooney, as an internationally renowned humanitarian lawyer, brings infinitely more to the table than the usual “wife of” status would imply. With Amal, we’re actually closing in on “husband of” territory, as Clooney’s latest Vogue cover story reveals. When it comes to international human rights, free speech, protecting women and bringing abusers to justice—literally—around the world, Clooney is the star of the show.
