“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 talks human rights in Mideast speech 20.03.2016

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Advocate and lawyer Amal Clooney told an audience in the Middle East on Sunday that governments around the world should be vocal, consistent, principled and transparent about human rights.

Clooney was speaking at the opening of a government communications summit in the United Arab Emirates. She was a headline speaker at the annual event, which included the ruler of the emirate of Sharjah, Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi.

“The first piece of advice I would have from my experience is that governments need to be vocal about human rights,” she said.

She said Arab countries are facing “an unprecedented human rights crisis.” She urged that criticism of ruling systems be met with dialogue, not prison terms, and that protests be met with “crowd control,” not bullets.

“My advice to you is not only to be vocal and consistent, but also to be principled in communications about human rights. The fourth suggestion I have is to be quick,” she said. “Governments must be prepared to be transparent and get their message out first.”

Clooney mentioned countries such as Sudan, Iran and North Korea in her 12-minute speech, however she made no specific references to rights abuses in Gulf Arab countries or the humanitarian toll of the Saudi-led military intervention in Yemen, which the UAE is taking part in.

U.N. human rights chief Zeid Raad al-Hussein condemned the “repeated failure” of the coalition to avoid hitting civilians after more than 100 people were killed in an airstrike on a crowded market Tuesday.

From Amnesty United Arab States

“The authorities arbitrarily restricted freedom of expression, arresting and prosecuting government critics. A new law on combating discrimination and hatred imposed further limits on the rights to freedom of expression and association. Security forces subjected dozens of people to enforced disappearance. Torture and other ill-treatment of detainees was common. Prisoners of conscience remained imprisoned following unfair trials. Women faced discrimination in law and in practice. Migrant workers were inadequately protected by law and faced exploitation and abuse. The death penalty remained in force and there was one execution.”
