Amal Clooney at the Texas Conference For Women 2016 in Austin 15.11.2016

“As women, there is a bond we all share,” Amal Clooney told a sold-out audience at the 17th Annual Texas Conference for Women at the Austin Convention Center. “

Amal Clooney has worked closely with many influential people, not the least of which being her philanthropist/award-winning actor husband George Clooney. But when asked whom she admires most as a role model, the human rights attorney answered from the heart.

“I think growing up my mother was definitely a role model, she was always a working woman and someone who is independent and cared about her career and cared about being independent but also had balance,” she said during a Q&A at the Texas Conference for Women, where she was the keynote speaker on Tuesday.

“She never lost her femininity and she believed the balance was important and that is something that stuck with me,” added Clooney, who looked elegant in a pinstripe dress.

Amal Clooney also mentioned associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as one of her biggest inspirations. “When I was a junior lawyer she was incredible to watch in action in court, how she had so many cases in her head and firing questions at these lawyers standing before her,” she explained, adding, “But then also on the personal side, [she] was just lovely and I was the most junior and irrelevant person in her chamber … and she was very charming and very balanced.”

During her keynote speech, Amal Clooney discussed women’s rights around the world, and spoke at length about her 23-year-old Yazidi client Nadia Murad, who is now a political refugee in Germany after living in captivity as an ISIS sex slave. Since her escape, Murad has stood up to her former captors by becoming a women’s rights activist and by speaking out against the Islamic State. She has been nominated for the Nobel peace prize for her efforts.

“I am advocating for the United Nations Security Council to do more to prosecute [ISIS]. I am addressing the security council next month,” Amal Clooney promised.

In closing, she reminded the audience, “As women, there is a bond that we all share. It’s a bond of shared experience. Experiences that only women go through and struggles that only women face. The worst thing that we can do as women is not stand up for each other. And this is something that we can practice everyday no matter where we are or what we do. Because if we are united, there is no limit to what we can do.” via People magazine

Amal Clooney in Altuzarra for the New Friends New Life Wings Luncheon in Dallas 14.04.2016

Amal Clooney took her first trip to Dallas to stand up for those sold into slavery throughout the world.

She spoke before a sold-out crowd at the annual New Friends New Life luncheon on Thursday at the Hilton Anatole.

The event raised more than $1 million for the anti-trafficking organization, which offers counseling, housing and other services to 1,400 formerly trafficked teens and women every year.

Amal Clooney discussed international human trafficking, crimes against journalists and how her passion makes her good at her job. The conversation was moderated by WFAA-TV (Channel 8) anchor Shelly Slater.

Though the conversation occasionally drifted to the topic of Clooney’s husband, actor George Clooney, she remained focused on the fact that 27 million people are enslaved throughout the world.

Clooney said that if nonprofits can make a difference to just one woman, the work is worth it.

“A lot I’m hearing about what New Friends New Life does is giving hope, bringing hope to them just to show you’re there,” she said. “It’s about being resilient and not giving up.”

Clooney said her passion motivates her work in human rights.

“The reason I’m doing the cases I do is because I’m emotional about them,” she said. “I don’t think a woman should apologize for that any more than a man should.”

Clooney said she doesn’t believe in starting a career with a long-term plan. It’s better to see where the work takes you, she said. But she praised a student from Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School for already knowing what she wants to do.

“I’ve offered her an internship just as soon as she gets her law degree,” Clooney joked.

The student, Samantha Casas, has worked on anti-trafficking projects and spoke before Clooney. Casas emphasized the importance of helping victims of sexual trafficking.

“Without an organization like New Friends New Life, they may never know what it means to be educated, to be loved, to be free,” said Casas, who wants to follow in Clooney’s footsteps.

Amal Clooney said knowledge about the issues is important, which is why she said she works so hard to free journalists imprisoned in countries with few free-speech protections.

“We need them to be able to tell us what’s happening in the world,” she said.

That information, Amal Clooney said, has kept her from supporting businesses or countries that allow slavery of women.

Amal Clooney quotes :

Her first trip to Texas was slightly more stressful.
“When I was coming here, I thought about my first-ever trip to Texas. It started when I first began working as a lawyer in New York … I got a call from the assigning partner who said, ‘Yeah, have you ever heard of Enron?’ The next day, my clients were on the front page of The New York Times, and I was working for the next two years in Houston. That was my introduction to Texas, so it’s nice being here in Dallas under much more pleasant and less stressful circumstances.”

Public life has changed dramatically since her high-profile wedding
Despite the luncheon’s heavy topic, Clooney spoke often with a sense of humor.
“As a barrister, sometimes here in America I am asked, ‘What’s it like working in the coffee industry?'”
She relayed stories then of living under an entirely new — and often bizarre — microscope. Like the snarky time Vanity Fair posted a photo of her wearing a traditional barrister’s wig next to George Washington and asked Who Wore It Best?
“Fortunately, I won … purely on the basis that I have better teeth,” she joked.

There has been a defining moment for her work.
When she was 24, she assisted Judge Patrick Robinson on trial against former president of Serbia, Slobodan Milosevic, who was accused of war crimes and genocide.
“It showed that no one is above the law, and since then, other heads of state have been brought to trial,” she said. “It set a new stage of international justice that hadn’t been met in 50 years.”

Her most dangerous work has been “worth it.”

Clooney discussed cases that took her on immensely dangerous journeys throughout highly insecure areas that required immense safety measures, but she says it is the “extraordinary survivors” there that drive her work.
“Around 2005, I was in Beirut in a compound with four check points and at the fourth, there was a massive crater the guard could climb into to inspect the undercarriage of vehicles for bombs,” she said, describing one of the most treacherous. “I was there for my 30th birthday and people would ask, ‘So, you left a job in a New York … in a law office … for this?'”
