Jolie travelled to Johannesburg with William Hague earlier this month to meet survivors of and campaigners against sexual violence, at a forum hosted by the British High Commissioner.

Speaking at the meeting, Jolie Pitt said: "There is a global epidemic of violence against women which can no longer be tolerated, and must be addressed.
