President Barack Obama has given Gabrielle Union a job, and it will require more than her acting abilities. He’s appointed her to the National Committee for Violence Against Women.

Gabrielle has publicly revealed that she was raped at gunpoint at the age of 19, and that the tips she’d seen on an episode of Oprah’s talk show helped her survive.

Gabrielle has known Barack since he was a junior senator in Illinois. No word on what the job will entail, but so far she’s called this gig the most “fulfilling” of them all.
