The 39-year-old, who is married to George Clooney, attended a United Nations Security Council meeting on threats to international peace and security in New York.

Following the meeting, Amal, who was accompanied by her client Nadia Murad — a Yazidi survivor of ISIS enslavement — said in a Facebook Live video, "It's a huge milestone for all of those who've been fighting for justice for victims of crimes committed by ISIS," adding, "It says to victims that their voices will be heard and they may finally get their day in court."
