The Afflecks Take Capitol Hill

by The Insider 1:34 mins

The Afflecks are making politics and social justice a family affair. Ben and wife Jennifer Garner brought their 9-year-old daughter, Violet, to Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., on Thursday as the Oscar winner supported the advocacy group he founded, the Eastern Congo Initiative, and testified before a Senate subcommittee about the need for foreign aid in Africa. The trip was clearly educational for Violet, whose two siblings, Serafina, 6, and Samuel, 3, were not in attendance. In the past, Garner has opened up about her philosophy on educating her daughters. "I want my girls to love math," she told Glamour last November. "I want them to think that being a scientist is the coolest possible job on the planet. I want them to not be afraid to lean toward their femininity; to love carrying a baby doll around; to know how to bake. And to be able to kick a guy's ass — that's why they've been in karate since they were little." Check out the video to hear how Ben had a little fun with the crowd on the Hill and tune in to "The Insider With Yahoo" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
