Angelina Jolie is taking on a new job: professor! The actress was recently appointed a visiting professor the the acclaimed London School of Economics where she will lecture Master’s students in the Women, Peace and Security program. How cool?!

Angelina already released a statement, saying,

I am very encouraged by the creation of this master’s program. I hope other academic institutions will follow this example, as it is vital that we broaden the discussion on how to advance women’s rights and end impunity for crimes that disproportionately affect women, such as sexual violence in conflict.”

The program will also feature course on Gender and Militarisation and Gender and Human Rights.

This sounds like an amazing program! Why don’t all institutions have programs like these? Hopefully this new Master’s degree, along with the attention Angelina Jolie will bring to it, will inspire other colleges and universities to follow suit.
