Actress and U.N. Special Envoy Angelina Jolie and British Foreign Secretary told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour they didn’t mind being labelled the “odd couple” of international relations.
"We're making progress!" says Hague.
"Whatever works!" adds Jolie.
The two have joined forces in the fight against sexual violence in conflict. The recent the four day summit in London has brought attention to the topic they are both passionate about.
"Angelina brings what governments cannot bring" says Hague. "You need a major government of the world to be involved in this. With that diplomatic network, with our development budget with our convening power to bring together something like this summit"
"But you also need to reach people who are not usually interested in what governments have to say and there are people who will take notice of what she [Angelina] says"

Today, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi ordered his interior minister to fight sexual harassment after several women were attacked during his inauguration celebrations. But will el-Sisi's sentiment make a difference?
"Definitely", says Hania Moheeb a prominent activist for Women's rights in Egypt and who is herself a victim of sexual harassment.
"President Sisi owes a lot to Egyptian women who lined up to vote for him."
"I was happy that he spoke about the issue...I think that if he has the will and declared that he has the will then something will happen."
CNN's Christiane Amanpour speaks to author Edwidge Danticat who penned a Haitian's girls story in the Girl Rising film.
