As we all know Michelle and Kate, let me tell you more about George Clooney's wife, Amal.
Amal is a lawyer, activist, and author. She worked at the International Court of Justice in international law and human rights. One of her high profile clients is the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
She has also been a part of several United Nations commissions and tribunals. She has contributed to the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict initiative, which works to defend the rights of women in war zones. She is also a lecturer on criminal law at the University of London and the Hague Academy of International Law. At present, she is a visiting faculty member at Columbia Law School’s Human Rights Institute.
And here is the interesting part. Google her name and these are just some of the things that will appear about her:

We have a woman who represented the former prime minister of Ukraine and former Libyan intelligence chief. She is appointed at the Public International Law Panel of Counsel in the Office of the UK Attorney General. She worked on the Cambodian-Thai border dispute regarding claims of ownership over the Temple of Preah Vihear that went before the International Court of Justice at The Hague.
How many of us can boast of such credentials?
This is a woman who makes George Clooney a poster boy for trophy husbands.

What a puzzling world we live in.
