The event touched on women's rights, addressing the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and the restrictive abortion legislation in Texas, and included a star-studded lineup of guests.

Jolie later introduced Gorman, who read a poem at the event.

"How many Amandas are living in Afghanistan, hiding their journal, waiting to see if they're going to be allowed to go to school?" Jolie said, according to The Associated Press. "As if anyone has the right to decide what a woman can or cannot do with her own mind and body."

"There is nothing more beautiful, more challenging, and perhaps unsettling than the free mind of a thinking woman," she added.

Zahara is one of six children Jolie has with her ex Brad Pitt. Last month, the proud mom shared rare photos on her new Instagram account of Zahara and Shiloh, 15, reading books.
