Jolie receives honorary damehood.angelina jolie damehood

Sometimes when stars receive “honorary awards” I just want to roll my eyes because it feels fake, just another step on the popularity ladder.  This time I feel as though it is well-deserved.  Angelina Jolie has always been an advocate for women, children, and peace.  It doesn’t feel as if her concern is fake.  Usually when you find out she or Brad Pitt are doing something, it has actually already happened.

Congratulations Angelina Jolie.

About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.

One Response to Jolie receives honorary damehood

  1. Brian Bixby says:

    David Canadine, in “The Decline and Fall of the British Aristocracy,” traced how the honors system of noble titles and knighthoods, which used to be tied to the other measures of power in British society (wealth, land, political office), gradually became unstuck from those measures and became more democratic, a development that according to his analysis really got going between 1880 and 1922.

    Sadly, you’ll wince when you read what one of the great driving forces for this change was: the political parties needed a way to reward wealthy men whose only merit was in making large campaign contributions.
