At a recent speech at the United Nations in New York, human rights lawyer Amal Clooney called upon Iraq and the world to take action against ISIS for the genocide being perpetrated by it.

Clooney was joined by her client Nadia Murad – a 21-year-old Yazidi woman who was captured and raped by ISIS militants in Iraq – as she urged Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi to send a letter to the UN Security Council so that it can vote to begin an investigation into crimes committed by the Islamic State in Iraq.

However, the focus of attention for the media turned out to be Clooney’s ‘baby bump’ and her dress.

 

Mirror went with the headline, “Amal Clooney is a vision in yellow as she shows off hint of baby bump in chic dress.”

Entertainment Tonight said, “Amal Clooney Stuns in Yellow While Delivering Passionate Speech at the United Nations.”

While E! News went with: “Amal Clooney Shows Baby Bump in What Could be the Ultimate International Women’s Day Poster.”

And Hollywood Life had this to say, “Amal Clooney Puts Her Growing Baby Bump on Display In Chic Yellow Dress for U.N. Speech”.

Clooney in her speech said, “I am speaking to you, the Iraqi government, and to you, U.N. member states, when I ask: Why? Why has nothing been done?”

She ended by saying, “Don’t let this be another Rwanda, where you regret doing too little, too late. Don’t let ISIS get away with genocide.”
