After the full trailer shown at the San Diego Comic-Con, Walt Disney Pictures released a new official poster for Maleficent: Lady of Evil, the sequel that will again see Angelina Jolie as the antagonist of Sleeping Beauty. But reflecting on the meaning of the word in an interview with Elle U.K.
"But looking across the world, we have to ask, Why is so much energy expended to keep women in a secondary position?" she asked.
"Looked at in this light, "wicked women" are just women who are exhausted of injustice and abuse".
In her essay, Angelina tries to talk to women who faced rejection whenever they questioned the existing, something that they refuse to conform to. In the essay, Jolie goes on to recall some memorable trips to third-world countries since she has been doing that for a reallt long time with the goal of working with refugees.

The suspect - believed to be a former employee - and a city police officer were injured in an exchange of gunfire. Pop pop pop pop - more than a dozen shots. "I saw at least one cop running in the store with a rifle".
In that context, Jolie mentions the six children she shares with her ex, Brad Pitt - Maddox, who celebrates his 18th birthday on Monday, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and 11-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. And when it comes to the most important lesson she's teaching her girls, the screen star wants them to have strong, independent minds. A pretty dress can be worn at any time but it doesn't matter what you wear on the outside if you don't have a strong mind.
According to People magazine, high school graduate Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 17, will be attending South Korea's Yonsei University later this month to begin studying biochemistry.
Meanwhile, the "Wanted" actress is the cover girl for the new United Kingdom edition of ELLE magazine. "I think we can often go offtrack as women, because our instinct is to nurture or to adjust ourselves to society's expectations", she ponders.
She continued: "Who we are meant to be in life is something we all have to work out for ourselves". "Women could be accused of witchcraft for having an independent sex life, for speaking their mind on politics or religion, or for dressing differently", she wrote. "But when you listen to yourself, you can make the choice to step forward and learn and change".
