Actress Angelina Jolie shares the Biggest Lesson She Hopes to Teach Her Daughters as she covers Elle Magazine

Oscar award winning actress, Angelina Jolie covers the March issue of ELLE magazine, and in an interview with former Secretary of State John Kerry, she shares what she hopes her children, her daughters especially, will learn from her 17 years of working with refugees and her co-founding the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative in June 2012.

She says;
"I tell my daughters, ‘What sets you apart is what you are willing to do for others. Anyone can put on a dress and makeup. It’s your mind that will define you,'" says Jolie -- who has three daughters, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 11, and Vivienne, 9, with ex Brad Pitt. "'Find out who you are, what you think, and what you stand for. And fight for others to have those same freedoms. A life of service is worth living.'"
The 42-year-old Oscar winner further stresses the importance of everyone having their own voice and using it. "I think of how hard women fought to get us to where we are today. Everything counts, from the way you hold yourself in daily life and educate yourself on your own rights, to solidarity with other women around the world."
Jolie chooses to use her voice to speak out against violence against women. "When it comes down to it, we still treat violence against women as a lesser crime," she laments. "In some countries, sexual violence is less of a taboo discussion. It’s something more people expect their leaders to act on."
