Three months after welcoming twins Ella and Alexander, Amal Clooney returned back to work on Thursday, September 21, in New York City.

According to the Associated Press, the council agreed to let the UN help Iraq investigate and collect evidence in order to hold ISIS accountable for their war crimes and genocide. Following the meeting, Amal, who was accompanied by her client Nadia Murad — a Yazidi survivor of ISIS enslavement — said in a Facebook Live video, "It's a huge milestone for all of those who've been fighting for justice for victims of crimes committed by ISIS," adding, "It says to victims that their voices will be heard and they may finally get their day in court."

The new mom looked business chic wearing a skirt suit by Bottega Veneta. Amal’s appearance marked her first at the United Nations since welcoming her son and daughter on June 6. Earlier this month, Amal made her post-baby red carpet debut during the Venice Film Festival. Since giving birth, George and Amal spent a majority of their time in Italy with their newborns.
