With women across the globe taking a stand to tell their truth.  It's nice to see Amal represent the truth and stand for women equality across the GLOBE.

Amal Clooney is a multi-talented women and that’s one of the many reasons why she was talking at the Massachusetts Conference for Women this week.
Looking stunning in a monochrome ensemble, which hails from Givenchy’s SS19 collection, Amal’s outfit comprised of a black ribbed knit top, leather skirt and she completed the look with a pair of leather pumps, all from the fashion house.
A leather midi skirt is becoming quite the in-thing, and we love this wrap one on Amal! Wear yours to the office with heels, or we think it will look just as good with white sneakers and a chunky knit!
Unfortunately you can’t buy Amal’s exact look just yet, but while you wait, why not emulate her style with the help of the edit below. We have found some great alternatives from Topshop, Blank NYC, Romeo + Juliet and more!

Her brunette tresses cascaded down in loose, flowing waves, and her complexion shined with peach blush and lipstick. 
On stage, Amal had audience members in the palm of her hand as she gave a speech on women's rights, equality, and the Me Too movement.

'We are living through a moment of reckoning and a rebalancing of power. But it's a long way from #MeToo to Never Again,' she said, according to the Massachusetts Conference For Women Twitter account.
'For too long, women have suffered abuses without speaking out or without being believed,' she said. 
Amal also addressed sexual violence against women.

'Rape is part of a plan to systematically control women for the rest of their lives. Rape is an attempt to destroy a woman's spirit and her will to survive,' she said. 
She also made remarks about equal rights: 'Achieving equality is not just the right thing to do, it is the profitable thing to do. No country can reach its full potential until women have equal rights.' 
Amal was at one point joined by her father-in-law Nick, who was also a scheduled speaker.

She finished off her look with five-inch platform boots and a beret. The twins both wore jeans and white sneakers and carried matching teddy bears with festive red ties. 
Little Ella wore a fluffy white beanie and carried a stylish brown bag decorated with stickers while Alexander wore a black coat. 
The night before, Amal was a picture of glamour at the 23rd annual United Nations Correspondents Association Awards.
She attended with her husband, George Clooney and also brought two extra special guests along: her in-laws Nick Clooney and Nina Bruce Warren.
Amal was honoured as 2018's Global Citizen of the Year at the gala. She was appointed to her first UN commission in 2013 and has taken on a number of high profile international cases in her career as a civil rights lawyer. 
As she took to the stage, she delivered a blistering speech in which she accused President Trump of giving the 'green light' to autocratic regimes who jail and kill journalists after he named the American press the 'enemy of the people'.

Her little ones: Clooney was truly a hands-on mom as she carried both of her cherubic children in New York City on Thursday




She said reporters around the world are 'under attack' from autocratic regimes including in North Korea, the Philippines, Hungary, Turkey, and Brazil. 
She added: 'The U.S. President has given such regimes a green light and labeled the press in this country the "enemy of the people".
'And of course two months ago a Washington Post journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, walked into a consulate in Istanbul and was brutally tortured to death.'
Saudi Arabia has confessed to killing Khashoggi in a pre-meditated attack, but has denied its Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was involved.
She also spoke about the jailing of two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who were imprisoned for seven years in Myanmar after covering the killings of the Rohingya religious minority.
They were jailed alongside a policeman, who testified that the men were set up by authorities.

Amal Clooney is sharing her past experiences with “unwanted advances” in the workplace.
The internationally renowned human rights attorney, 40, spoke about her experiences in the workplace at the Massachusetts Conference for Women in Boston to a crowd of about 12,000 people on Thursday during a Q&A with her father, journalist Nick Clooney.
Nick, 84, asked his daughter-in-law if she had ever experienced sexual harassment in the workplace to which she said, “Yes.”
“In the sense of unwanted advances that were inappropriate and awkward to deal with,” she explained. “Yes. And I think at the time, I would not have felt comfortable speaking out about it because other [women in similar situations] weren’t, and so I think that’s changed now.”
As for how it’s become different, the mother of two shared she felt her 18-month-old daughter Ella would have the opportunity to work in more pleasant environments.

“I think the workplace is safer for my daughter and is more fair than it was,” she said. “I don’t think women of her generation are going to expect that that’s just something that we have to put up with and I think now it’s the men, or the harassers, who have something to fear and not the victim and that’s a very good change, so thank you to the women of the Me Too movement.”
Amal also shares 18-month-old son Alexander, Ella’s twin, with husband George Clooney.
The couple stepped out on Wednesday night to attend the 23rd annual United Nations Correspondents Associations (UNCA) Awards in New York City.

ost recently, Amal was honored at Variety’s annual Power of Women luncheon, where George introduced himself to the star-studded crowd by using his wife’s moniker.
“Hi, I’m George and I’m Amal Clooney’s husband,” he joked at the event in October, as he supported his wife. Making everyone crack up, the Oscar winner added, “I can read this room.”
Amal, however, wasn’t on hand, as the human rights lawyer was giving a keynote speech in Philadelphia during the 2018 Pennsylvania Conference for Women.
The couple married in September 2014 and welcomed their children in June 2017.
