Angelina Jolie and Justin Trudeau joined forces in Toronto
And we watched it all go down.
Here’s something that doesn’t happen every day. Angelina Jolie and Justin Trudeau combined their social change superpowers in Toronto this week at the Women in the World Summit.
The actress/director/humanitarian and the PM (along with his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau) were the headliners at the one-day conference, held at the Art Gallery of Ontario. It was the first time the feminist conference, the brainchild of Tina Brown (formerly of Vanity Fair and The Daily Beast, etc.), has been held in Canada.
Jolie was in attendance to speak about her latest directorial project, First They Killed My Father, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival later that night. (She also produced another TIFF movie, The Breadwinner.)
If you have the time, the whole conference is definitely worth a watch, but until then, here are Jolie and Trudeau’s panels.
