Meghan Markle has been making waves in the royal family since she first met Prince Harry. Coming from a Hollywood background, Markle does something different than most royals. She is especially open to feminism.
On International Women's Day, Markle spoke with singer Annie Lennox and former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on a panel at King's College London.
Aside from dealing with the racist and sexist comments she gets online (she does not read them), she also talked a lot about feminism.
Markle, who is expected to be born in late April, touched how she and Harry are excited to raise their child as a feminist (albeit perhaps not sexually).
"I've actually joked in the last few weeks, I've seen this Netflix documentary on feminism, and one of the things they said during pregnancy was," I sense that feminism shows embryonic kicks. "I love that. So, boy or girl, whatever it is, we hope that's the case," she said.
Meghan Markle believes that feminism should include men
Markle also spoke a little about how men should at least be involved in the dialogue that is taking place in the feminist movement.
"I think it would be impossible to have no boys, especially not as part of this conversation, because you can imagine how much courage it takes for a young girl in a small village where most girls do not You've gone school, do whatever they can, and go miles to get an education. "
Markle believes that feminism can only be strengthened with the support of men. Why should not they be recorded?
She talked about the importance of investing in our young women today to create the strong leaders of tomorrow.
"It's not just about girls going to school and becoming intelligent girls. They know that these smart girls will become influential women, and that will change the world for the better. "
She even got Prince Harry involved. According to Markle, he is a proud feminist.
"There is nothing threatening when a woman reaches the same level, it is our safety in numbers. Men are part of the conversation … my husband certainly is!
This is not the first time Meghan Markle has said that Prince Harry is a feminist.
This is not the first time that Markle talks about her husband's feminist values. Last year, during a trip to Cardiff, Wales, Markle mentioned that her husband is a feminist.
According to People, a fan of the royal family, Jessica Phillips told Markle that she found it "really lovely to have a feminist in the royal family." Markle replied, "[Harry’s] also feminist that's it."
