Following International Womens Day on 8th March, Meghan Markle

mades this speech:

As the current climate is shining a light on the empowerment of women, Meghan Markle disagrees with the people that say we are helping women find their voice – Meghan says:                                                                       

... “Women don’t need to find a voice, they have a voice.

They need to feel empowered to use it,

and people need to be encouraged to listen”

“I think right now in the climate that we’re seeing, with so many campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp, there’s no better time to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that, it makes such a tremendous difference.”
